  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add broccoli, salt and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, until the vegetables are soft, about 3 more minutes. Remove from heat.

Whisk mascarpone, yogurt, garlic powder and the reserved pasta water together in a small bowl. Add to the pasta along with the broccoli mixture. Stir well to coat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
**If you’re looking for a mascarpone substitute and you need an alternative, replace with one of these options: Blend 8 ounces softened cream cheese with 1/4 cup whipping cream. OR – Blend 8 ounces softened full fat cream cheese with 1/4 cup softened butter and 1/4 cup cream.
