Pasta with White Beans and Broccoli Pesto

Saintly broccoli: so good for you; so ubiquitous; so … boring. Not any more! Today I'm turning it on its head (get it … head?), and trying something completely new. A delicious, easy, and vegetarian pasta utilizing the old standby in a whole new way. Broccoli is cooked in the pasta water, then blended with Parmesan, lemon juice, and parsley for a zesty, wintry version of pesto. Add some creamy white beans, and voila! Broccoli is new again.

Classic Basil Pesto Recipe

I hate wasting herbs (well, anything really; but today we’re talking herbs), so when I find myself with a bunch of leftovers, I make a batch of pesto. A few minutes, some herbs, cheese, nuts, and oil is all it takes. Pulse a few times in a food processor, and serve it up tossed into pastas, mixed into cooked vegetable salads, or spread on sandwiches. Any pesto you don't use freezes well or keeps in the fridge for a few days.
