Preparation
Makes 12 servings (1 cup)
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.

  2. Meanwhile make the pesto sauce by placing the roasted red peppers, garlic, salt and pepper, olive oil and toasted pine nuts (see note below), in a food processor and puree until smooth.

  3. Remove the sauce from the food processor into a small bowl. Stir in the chopped basil, lemon juice and lemon zest and set aside.

  4. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the purple onion and broccoli florets. Cook stirring occasionally for 5-6 minutes or until the onions and broccoli begin to soften. Stir in the beans, garlic powder, salt and pepper and parmesan cheese and remove from heat.

  5. Combine the cooked pasta, pesto sauce and veggie sauté. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and enjoy.

Notes: To toast the pine nuts place in a dry skillet over medium heat and stir frequently until they begin to release their oils and aroma, ~1-2 minutes.
