I followed this recipe from Mary's One Perfect Bite. This is one of her unique style of making pesto with the goodness of broccoli and walnuts. I really enjoyed this pesto with broccoli a lot. You can find the Mary's recipe from here.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Broccoli- Half of 1 whole broccoli
Walnuts- 2 tbsp
Olive oil- 2 tbsp
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Garlic- 3 cloves grated
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese- 1 tbsp
Parsley- 1 tbsp chopped finely
Pasta- 300 g
Salt and Pepper to taste
Steam the broccoli for 10 minutes. Saves 3 to 4 florets to mix with the pasta, add the remaining to a food processor along with the lemon juice, olive oil, walnuts, garlic and parsley. Pulse it and puree it, as the motor running slowly add the parmigiana cheese and puree it.
Cook the pasta in boiling water until it's fully cooked. Drain the water completely, toss it with olive oil, add the pesto, salt and pepper, the remaining broccoli and mix it well.
