The best way to eat your greens and your pasta. This recipe is a great lunch or dinner for a healthy yet filling meal.

Sometimes you just want a big bowl of pasta but you know that you should be eating more veggies. This recipe is the best way to do both! It’s loaded with kale and broccoli.

How to make super green pasta?

First, you want to make your kale pesto. This can be made in advance if you would like. I use the Sigsbee Street Kale Pesto Recipe. You can also use any other pesto you have on hand. Next, you want to bake your broccoli and cook your pasta. These should take about the same amount of time. While you pasta in cooking throw your veggies in the oven.

Can I use other vegetables?

Absolutely. You can swap out the broccoli for other vegetables such as asparagus or cauliflower. You can even add in multiple vegetables to make a blend. Mushroom, onions, and tomatoes are always great additions to this pasta recipe.

Is this recipe vegan?

It can be! Just make sure the kale pest you use is vegan. Here is my favorite vegan kale pesto recipe. You can add parmesan or use a non vegan pesto if you would prefer.
