  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.

  2. Heat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil. When oil begins to shimmer, add onions and bell peppers with a pinch of salt. Saute until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Add diced tomatoes (including juice) and crushed tomatoes and stir to combine. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. While sauce simmers, place broccoli into a microwave-safe container. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes, until tender. Season with some salt and pepper.

  4. Remove sauce from heat and stir pasta, broccoli, beans and feta (if it won't all fit easily in skillet, transfer to a baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray). Top with provolone. 

  5. Transfer to oven and bake until provolone is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.

  6. Serve pasta hot out of the oven and enjoy!
