So the dish is basically pasta with potatoes and vegetables and pesto, but really it could be any sauce you want. I just prefer pesto. For this particular dinner I made a parsley pesto using pistachios in place of pine nuts.
|Delicious, quick, and easy.|
Pistachio-Parsley Pesto (hows that for some alliteration)
1 bunch of parsley, trimmed but keep the stems because they're delicious
0.5 cups shelled pistachios (w/out shells)
0.25 cups nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic
1/2 a lemon's worth of juice
0.5 cups olive oil
salt and pepper
Put everything in a food processor except the oil then let her rip. Get it all chopped up really well then slowly add the oil while the food pro is whizzing. Let it combine but don't let it get too smooth.
Quick Meal Method
In a pot of boiling water add some of your favorite potatoes chopped into a dice. Let that boil for 5 minutes then add the pasta. Wait another 5-7 minutes then add your chopped broccoli. Let boil for another 3-5 minutes until everything is tender. Drain. Return to pot. Drizzle with olive oil and then add the pesto. Season. Top with nutritional yeast. Use the proportions that you want so that you get most of what you like the most. Enjoy!
I'm pumped to see what everyone else is doing for this year's mofo!!
