Macaroni with mushrooms and purple broccoli

I made this recipe out of what I had in the fridge but am so pleased with it I’ll share it here. The earthiness of the dried mushroom complements the fresh purple broccoli perfectly. What an undervalued vegetable that is and reminds me of my happy allotment days! This recipe is quick and easy too – it took less time to make than to drink a cup of tea.
