Roasted Broccoli Pesto Pasta
Have you been discarding broccoli stems? This broccoli pesto is the best reason to keep them around. Slice broccoli stalks and roast in the oven mixed with the florets. A handful of florets mingle with the pasta, but the rest goes to making a nutty, cheesy, and zesty pesto. The pesto is hearty and satisfying and can be used in any other recipe that calls for pesto. Swap regular pasta for a whole-grain option such as kamut, farro, or whole wheat. Or opt to make it gluten-free with brown rice pasta.
