Pasta ai Broccoli e Pesto
Nonna has always taught us to eat as many vegetables as possible, Broccoli are some of our favourites and they are so good for you! Full of goodness and extremely tasty. This recipe is just perfect for everyone, you can eat it hot or cold 🙂
- 350g pasta (short pasta preferably)
- 250g Broccoli florets
- handful of fresh basil
- handful of parsley
- 3tbs olive oil
- salt, pinch
- pinenuts, 100g
- 1 clove of garlic
- Boil 1 litre of water in a large saucepan. Add a table spoon of course salt and add the pasta in. Follow the cooking times on the package and add the broccoli florets 4 minutes before the pasta is cooked.
- While the pasta is cooking, use a pestle and mortar (or a hand blender will do the job too) and blend together the basil, parley, olive oil, salt, pine nuts and garlic. No nuts if you have a nut allergy. You can add a handful of parmesan cheese or a handful of fresh rocket.
- Drain the pasta and the broccoli. Mix together with the pesto and ENJOY!!!
