  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Meanwhile, bring the milk and broccoli to a gentle simmer in a second non-stick saucepan set over a medium heat and cook for 10-15 mins. The broccoli will cook in the milk and form a soft purée, which is the base of the sauce.
  2. Step 2

    Tip the rigatoni into the pan of boiling water and stir. Cook for 1 min less than the pack instructions. Stir the parmesan and taleggio into the broccoli mixture until fully melted and smooth.
  3. Step 3

    Season the sauce and grate in some nutmeg to taste. Transfer the rigatoni directly from its cooking water to the broccoli cheese sauce using a slotted spoon. Mix together well, adding a ladleful of the water to loosen the sauce, if needed. Check for seasoning, then spoon into bowls and drizzle with a little olive oil before serving.
