For some reason, I’ve been in a pasta mood lately (perhaps it has to do with the fact that it’s winter and I’ve accepted that I won’t see a bathing suit for months). One of my favorite pasta dishes is my mom’s pesto pasta, but this requires homegrown basil, not something I currently have. So to make up for this, I made this dish, which uses broccoli to make a pesto like sauce that is delicious. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a pasta dish on the healthier side.
I’m all about easy dinners to make. As many of my friends know, I used to make the same couple things for dinner every week (they involved a lot of spinach, hummus, and tortilla chips). But this summer when I moved into my new apartment with Dave, I set a goal of trying new things every week. And so far, I think I’ve done a pretty decent job. So here’s a recipe of one of the new things I just tried that was easy, fast, delicious, and healthy.
