Broccoli, as you all know, is loaded with essential nutrients and vitamins and the benefit of including them in your diet are endless. Sometime back, I shared an easy and healthy broccoli and capsicum curry which can had with phulkas or rice and dal. Today I'm sharing a pasta recipe with broccoli and I'm sure even kids would love this pasta dish.
Broccoli adds a healthy twist to the good old basil pesto. Broccoli is low in cholesterol, high in fiber and vitamins and addition of broccoli to pesto makes it more nutritious. I saw this recipe in a local magazine and adapted to suit our taste buds. Keep the pesto little bit chunky as it adds some texture to the pasta. Try out this simple and healthy pasta at home and let me know how you liked it.
Notes and Tips
- You can use walnuts or almonds instead of pine nuts.
- Do not blend the pesto to a smooth consistency. Just process until everything is combined.
- You can add some grated Parmesan cheese while serving.
