Pasta and Broccoli with Garlic Butter Sauce

Choose broccoli with floret clusters that are compact and not bruised. They should be uniformly colored, dark green and with no yellowing. They should not have any yellow flowers blossoming through, as this is a sign of over maturity. The stalk and stems should be firm with no slimy spots appearing either there or on the florets.

Place broccoli in a plastic bag, removing as much of the air from the bag as possible. Store in the refrigerator where it will keep for 10 days. Do not wash broccoli before storing because exposure to water encourages spoilage. Leftover cooked broccoli should be placed in tightly covered container and stored in the refrigerator where it will keep for a few days.
