Roast the broccoli
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. On a lined sheet pan, toss the broccoli (halve if large) with a drizzle of oil and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 14 to 16 min., until tender.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 10 to 12 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Start the sauce
Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the squash rice, garlic, ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions), the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 min., until softened.

Finish the sauce & combine the pasta
To the pan of squash rice, add the cream and ⅔ of the reserved cooking water; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and add the pasta, cheese and 3 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until combined. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
