DIRECTIONS
  1. Prep all of your broccoli pesto ingredients—rinse the basil leaves, grate your Parmigiano, peel your garlic.
  2. Bring a big pot of salted water to a boil.
  3. Boil the broccoli. After two minutes, remove the florets, and add your pasta.
  4. While the pasta cooks, make the pesto! Blend the broccoli, basil, garlic, pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil, salt and parmigiano reggiano until it’s nice and smooth.
  5. When the pasta is done, scoop out a cup of that liquid gold (aka pasta water) and add it slowly to the pesto as you blend it a bit more.
  6. Toss the pasta with the broccoli pesto and dig in!
