Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the pasta per package instructions.
Meanwhile, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (see notes).
Toss the broccoli, with the olive oil, garlic powder, and onion powder. Transfer the broccoli mixture evenly onto the rack or into the air fryer basket. Set to 400 degrees F for about 8 to 10 minutes.
When the broccoli is done remove it from the air fryer. Toss it in a bowl with the parmesan cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, and season with kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste.
When the pasta is done, drain and divide it among four (4) serving dishes. Divide the broccoli among each dish of pasta.
Serve with dollops of fresh ricotta cheese, freshly grated parmesan cheese, a dash of red pepper flakes, and lemon wedges.
Preheating An Air Fryer: Yep, preheat the air fryer! I have read countless articles that suggest preheating an air fryer makes a huge difference when cooking food in it. I now preheat my air fryer. It does make a difference because the inside of the air fryer is already warm and doesn't have to heat up, making for crispier food. More than likely you don't have a preheat setting, so just run the air fryer for about three (3) minutes at 400 degrees F prior to adding the broccoli.
