Broccoli & Basil Pesto Pasta

July 13, 2010

My Carbaholicness (is that a word) continues. I had tons of purple basil pesto left over so I decided to put it on pasta. Tonight I used orzo pasta and since I have tons of broccoli from the co-op so I threw it in the pasta water to cook as well.
The result is a fantastic dinner.
Try it! Do it!
