Here comes a cabinet recipe. These are my favorite kind, because you have to be creative and rethink your expectations of food combinations. I found myself with puréed tomato, a can of Ro-Tel tomato and green chili, and some garlic. So the first thing I thought was pasta sauce!

1 tsp olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
Freshly ground black pepper
24 oz puréed tomato
1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and green chilies
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped or small florets

Sautée the minced garlic in the olive oil. Then add tomato, seasonings Ro-Tel, salt, and broccoli. Cook on low for 20 minutes or until you think the broccoli is cooked all the way through. Voilá! So easy, so delicious.
