Hi Uncle Phaedrus,

Here's a request for your readers of a certain age: Does anyone remember ABC's 
Home Show that aired on daytime television circa 1988-92? We scribbled down 
a recipe from a cooking segment for a dish we had great success replicating. 
Garlic and chile flakes were sauteed in olive oil before broccoli is added with 
water to cover, then pasta is added to cook in the same pot. I'm not sure i am 
remembering it or the proportions correctly so wondering if there are any other 
folks out there who may have jotted it down so long ago?

Many thanks!


Hi Sherri,

I had no success finding a "Home Show" recipe like that. I'll post this for reader input.
