Who doesn’t love to eat pasta on a cold evening at home? Pasta is like a hug in a bowl and the Chicken & Broccoli Pesto Pasta is no different. With Pasta, it’s almost all in the sauce and this broccoli and basil pesto sauce is so tasty. It’s light, creamy and packed with healthy nutrients to keep you going, especially if you’re looking after your well-being.
If you’ve made basil pesto before, this recipe will be just as easy. If you want to keep the colour and freshness of the broccoli, don’t over-steam it and add it to an ice bath immediately. This will keep the broccoli from losing all its nutrients in the water and keep the colour as bright as possible. You can even blanch the broccoli in boiling water if you don’t like using a microwave. You have all the iron, calcium, Vitamin K, protein and carbs that you need for a complete meal. Perfect for an evening meal, Chicken & Broccoli Pesto Pasta only has 602 calories per serving.
For anybody looking after their health but still loves food, Chicken & Broccoli Pesto Pasta is what you need this evening.
