While pasta and broccoli are cooking slice garlic and cook it gently over low heat in a large pan coated with olive oil with chopped sun-dried tomatoes and chili flakes for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Set aside. Drain pasta and broccoli, reserving ½ cup of water from the pasta.
