Coarsely chop broccoli florets; set aside. Peel broccoli stems, then coarsely chop. Heat butter in large skillet over medium heat. Stir in broccoli, red pepper, garlic and chili flakes; cook 2 min. Add wine, cover and cook until broccoli stems are cooked, about 5 min.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

To broccoli, add cream and sundried tomatoes; increase heat and simmer uncovered until cream thickens slightly, 4 to 5 min. Stir in half the Romano cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
