I'm so excited to try out everyone's recipes! Here's my new favorite one!
Pesto Broccoli Pasta
1 16 ounce package fusilli (corkscrew pasta), uncooked
1 8 ounce package feta cheese, crumbled
3-4 heaping spoonfuls pesto
1 cup cooked broccoli, finely chopped
small carton heavy cream (half pint?)
1. Cook pasta as directed on package; drain.
2. Heat heavy cream, 2 tbsp butter until boiling. Stir in pesto. Pour over pasta.
2. Toss with remaining ingredients
I've also added chicken to this. It's so delicious and takes very little effort.
I take a shortcut by buying the steam fresh veggie bag of broccoli, although you do have to sort through it cuz the stems don't go in the pasta.
Also, you could leave out the heavy cream and butter sauce, it tastes fine without it.
