1 lb Angel hair pasta
Water
3 tb Olive oil
3 Cloves garlic -- finely

Serving


Cook the pasta in boiling, salted water for 4 to 6 minutes, or until just
tender. Drain the pasta and toss it with 1 tablespoon of the oil to keep
it from sticking together, then keep it warm. Heat the remaining 2
tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and saute it lightly;
do not brown. Add the broccoli flowerets and peppers, and saute over medium
heatuntil tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the
skillet. Add the cream to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and
simmer until it starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add the Parmesan cheese
and nutmeg, and cook an additional 2 minutes to thicken it a bit more. Add
vegetables and the cooked pasta. Toss them together well. Season with salt
and pepper if needed. Serve immediately, with additional Parmesan on the
side.
