Pesto, Broccoli and White Bean Pasta

Pesto Broccoli PastaI love this one pot dish!  Filling and flavorful!  Anytime you put a bean (legume) and grain together you get a complete protein making this vegetarian main dish all you need for dinner with a side salad!


1 package of whole wheat angel hair pasta

16 oz. bottle of homemade or store bought pesto (I like Kirkland brand if I’m not making it myself)

4 cups frozen broccoli

15 oz. can white beans, rinsed and drained

Cook pasta in a large pot until almost cooked through.  Add the broccoli for the last few minutes until slightly softened but still crisp.  Drain and place back into the large pot.  Add the pesto and beans.  Check for seasonings and serve with a large green salad.
