Pasta is the ultimate delicious lazy meal. Add a quick crushed lemon sage walnut topping to feel fancy even if you just made this for yourself to eat on a slow day. Because you deserve to relax and enjoy your favorite cozy comfort food.
This broccoli pesto pasta is loaded with so many nutrients, but you wouldn’t even know it. It has broccoli of course, spinach, nuts, and if you love Eat Banza’s pasta as much as I do, chickpeas. Let’s head to flavor town!
- Process it all in a small processor. Blend all but ~ 1/3 cup of pesto with 1/2 cup of pasta water.
The pasta & walnuts
- Add olive oil to a small pan and saute crushed walnuts for a few min. Then add lemon zest and minced garlic.
- When the walnuts are almost perfectly toasted, sprinkle in 1/2 tsp dried sage a minute before taking the pan off of the heat.
- Pour the sauce over the pasta, combine well, and top with those walnuts!
