Vegan Mofo Day 23:

This is a very simple pasta dish that comes together in no time if you have cooked pasta on hand. I had some leftover Brown rice penne pasta in the fridge along with a bunch of broccoli that needed to be used up. Having stuck in traffic and coming home late from work, I was in no mood to cook anything elaborate, so this simple and quick pasta came about.
