Pasta With Broccoli recipe

I saw this yummy recipe ( on Dr. Weil's site today & adapted it slightly.

2 cups organic pasta (your choice)
2 cups Woodstock Organic Broccoli Florets, cut into bite-size pieces with vegetable scissors
1/2 cup filtered water
1 Tablespoon De Cecco Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Christopher Ranch Organic Chopped Garlic
2 pinches salt, separately
Organic Valley Raw Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1/2 teaspoon Trader Joe's Red Chili Pepper flakes

Half-fill a pot with water and a pinch of salt. Bring to boil, then add pasta. Turn heat down to medium and cook until the pasta is al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, use another pot & add broccoli, filtered water, olive oil, garlic & pinch of salt. Bring this to boil covered with a lid for 5 minutes. Remove lid, then condense remaining liquid while stirring.
Strain pasta, then add to broccoli mixture. Stir together.
Dish pasta mixture onto plates. Grate fresh cheese over pasta, to taste. Sprinkle pepper flakes over pasta.
Served 2.
