If you love quick and easy recipes, Roman-style pasta and broccoli will be one of your favorite dishes. Let’s find out how to prepare it together!

Today we present the recipe for Roman-style pasta and broccoli soup, a dish that originates from the tradition of Roman cuisine. The dish usually involves the use of anchovies in its traditional and original version but, if you love vegan recipes, today we offer you a version in which we have decided to eliminate anchovies giving a touch of intense flavor by adding a pinch of red pepper. In the cookbooks you can find some variations of Roman-style pasta and broccoli soup with the addition of grated cheese that, in this vegan version, you will not find. For those who want to dare a little more with the taste, you can use vegan cheese or nutritional yeast flakes.

The use of Romanesco broccoli, the main ingredient and protagonist of many other delicious recipes, is fundamental. To recognize it, one must pay attention to some specific characteristics of this broccoli variety such as, for example, the light green color , the typical pointed shape and the outermost dark green leaves around the inflorescences.
