1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil + 1 tbsp extra for sautéing

3 tbsp mixed Italian herbs like dill, basil, oregano, marjoram

1. Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain, rinse, and allow to cool slightly.

2. While pasta is cooking, sauté broccoli, onion, garlic and 1/2 of herb mix in one tbsp olive oil until tender-crisp, then place in bowl.
