We love this family friendly healthy and delicious Broccoli Pesto Pasta recipe. Perfect for those busy weeknight meals!

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 6-8 servings

Ingredients

1 pound spaghetti, linguine or any pasta

2 cups (145 grams) fresh broccoli florets

1/2 cup (65 grams) cup toasted walnuts

1/2 cup (65 grams) grated parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon garlic sea salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 cup (145 grams) olive oil (adjust accordingly)

1 tablespoon capers

Directions

1Cook pasta to package directions. Toss with some olive oil and set aside.

2Blanch, steam or microwave broccoli for a few minutes until it is bright green but not too soft. Plunge in an ice bath to stop cooking. Remove and pat with a paper towel to dry. Purée in a blender or food processor with the remainder of the ingredients. Adjust how thick the pesto is by adding more or less olive oil or water. This recipe will yield a thicker pesto which easily doubles as a dip or sauce.

3Toss pasta with the pesto and serve warm.
