Spinach and broccoli pesto spaghetti that will be a fan favorite with kids and adults.
One of Olivia’s favorite things to eat is noodles. She totally makes the slurpy sucking down noise as she puts them down. I decided to dress up her noodles and a little pesto to them. We usually make the traditional pesto but this time I was going to add some of her favorite vegetables to the mix. Her 14 month old birthday is tomorrow and I will be surprising her with pesto noodles. Olivia loves meat, vegetables and her new thing is smoothies. In fact I keep making a smoothie for myself but she insists that it is hers and hers only.
If your kids are picky eaters this is a great way to incorporate vegetables into their daily diet. This is also a great dish for adults as well. I’m a HUGE fan of pesto foods and I’m thinking of what might be next on my list.
If your kids don’t like sun-dried tomatoes feel free to substitue with cherry tomatoes.
Add broccoli to a medium pot of boiling water. Cook until tender about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
Add broccoli with the rest of the pesto ingredients into a food processor. Blend until smooth.
Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain the noodles and add the chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. Stir until everything is coated and then sprinkle with salt.
