Yield: 4 servings

A quick and colourful cheesy pasta that can be made into a vegetarian dish if you want to eliminate the meat.
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 7 minutes.
Add fresh broccoli; cook for about 3 minutes or until pasta and broccoli are tender but firm. (If using frozen broccoli, cook pasta 9 minutes before adding broccoli.)
Drain well and return to pot. Add cheese, pastrami, tomato and green onions; toss to combine.
Beat together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; stir into pasta mixture and cook over low heat, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until eggs are creamy and almost set.
