1. Place a large frying pan over high heat. Add a nugget of butter or a drizzle of olive oil. When warm, add breadcrumbs, walnuts and garlic with a pinch of salt and sauté till just golden. Set aside.
2. Cook your pasta according to pack instructions. Add the broccoli in the last 5 mins. Drain. Tip the pasta back in the pan. Set over low heat. Add cheese and cream. Stir till the cheese has just melted (if using brie, just use the gooey centre - not the rind). Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pile onto plates. Dust the walnut breadcrumbs over the top. Amazing.
