   and herbs, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the broccoli is
   tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
   Spoon over freshly cooked pasta and season with black pepper to taste.
   Note 1: to make reduced chicken broth, briskly boil 2 cups of the broth of
   your choice until it evaporates down to 1 cup (about 15 minutes)
   Note 2: Be sure to use sun-dried tomatoes packaged without oil
