Hot pasta is tossed with a homemade broccoli pesto that combines fresh basil, garlic, walnuts, and fresh parmesan cheese for a healthy spin on a classic.



  1. Boil 1 lb pasta using the instructions indicated on the package, strain, and set aside. Keep pot empty and ready for the last step.
  2. Add broccoli florets, basil, garlic, parmesan, and lemon juice to a food processor or a good blender, and pulse until totally chopped.
  3. Add oil slowly and pulse at intervals until it reaches your desired consistency, then add salt and pepper to your taste (easy on the salt, as the parmesan will add saltiness).
  4. When ready, add into the pot you cooked your pasta, turn heat up to medium until it begins to simmer, and let it cook for just a minute, then add pasta, pre-cooked grilled chicken if desired, toss, and enjoy!
