Boil about 8 cups of water, cook pasta until al dente, strain and set aside.
Chop broccoli into florets and wash.
In a tall edged stovetop pan heat garlic and oil over medium heat until fragrant (1-2 min).
Add broccoli and enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan.
Cover and let cook until broccoli is soft but still bright green.
Stir in tomatoes, salt, and pepper and leave on low until tomatoes are heated through.
Add pasta to the saucepan and cook for a couple of minutes, mixing to combine.
Remove from heat and top with more salt and pepper.
