Once again I have what was supposed to be a Meatless Monday post being posted way late. I'm going to blame the weather. The bleak, cold, dreary weather has really made me lazy the past few weeks and I can't shake the funk. It looks like we have another snowstorm on the horizon for the weekend, so maybe another snow day and I will actually grab the camera and document what is going on.
In the meantime, here is a bright green recipe to remind us of spring!
|One head of broccoli cut into florets. Get your pot of salted water boiling.|
|One bad thing about keeping pasta in large jars is that it's harder (for me at least) to eye-ball ounces. Oh well, a kitchen scale is easy enough to use.|
|Can you believe I could only find curly parsley? A little more that half a cup.|
|So we have a head of broccoli, about half a cup of parsley, 5 teaspoons of olive oil, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, and the tablespoon of lemon juice and teaspoon of zest. Season with salt. Yum!|
|GREEN!!!! I love it! Reserve a few cups of pasta water to loosen the sauce (I used about 1/2-3/4 of a cup) and mix the pesto, pasta, and cannellini beans together.|
|So wonderfully delicious. It looks like spring but is a total comfort food for these cold days!|
