Pasta with Broccoli and Pesto
When I was a Sophomore in college, I had a huge crush on a boy who was vegan. We often worked late together in the lithography studio, and most nights we'd take a dinner break and head to one of our apartments to cook. And almost every one of those nights, we made pasta with some sort of green vegetable (broccoli, green beans, zucchini, spinach) thrown into the pot halfway through, and then tossed with olive oil, sliced almonds, and salt and pepper. It was an easy meal to make and tonight, home sick with a cold, I decided easy was a good idea. I added in some homemade pesto (I always keep it in the freezer, ready to defrost), and voila: a relatively healthy meal in less than 10 minutes!
