With a wide range of vitamins and nutrients, broccolini is a cross between broccoli and gailan (Chinese broccoli). Here, we used it together with flaked smoked fish to elevate your ordinary penne.

1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups canned crushed tomatoes

1 cup chopped broccolini
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, divided
150 grams penne,
