 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       tb           Olive oil
    2       md           Garlic cloves, chopped fine
    1       sm           Onion, chopped fine
      1/2   tb           Whole caraway seeds
      1/2   lb           Broccoli florets and stems,
                         -cut into 1/2 pieces (about
                         -2 cups)
    1       c            Reduced chicken broth
      1/4   lb           Part skim milk ricotta
    2       tb           Chopped fresh parsley
                         Pasta of your choice
   In a large skillet or saucepan, heat the oil with the garlic, onion, and
   caraway seeds, over moderate heat. As soon as they sizzle, add the
   brocolli and saute, stirring continuously, until it turns dark green,
   about 1 minute.
   Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer until
   the broccoli is tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
   Dot the sauce with the ricotta and, as soon as it begins to melt, spoon
   over cooked pasta. Garnish with parsley.
   Note 1: to make reduced chicken broth, briskly boil 2 cups of the canned
   broth of your choice until it evaporates down to 1 cup.
   Note 2: For an even lighter version, you can substitute hoop cheese for
   the ricotta.
