1. Fry a finely chopped onion in olive oil, when translucent add two heads of broccoli cut into small pieces. Cover and leave on a low heat until the broccoli is cooked. You may need to add a bit of water to create steam and prevent broccoli from sticking. When the broccoli is cooked coarsely mash

2. Whisk salt and pepper, the yolk of one egg and ½ a pint of cream.

3. Finally, mix the egg/cream mixture and the broccoli mixture to cooked pasta or gnocchi

Serve with a generous amount of grated parmesan and cracked pepper.
