The ridges in the fresh pasta are ready to bend and receive a full-bodied sauce. We loaded this easy-to-love dish with peas and broccoli, browned but still crunchy, for a strong veggie component. You’ll build up multiple levels of flavour from a punchy red pesto of sun-dried tomatoes, a medley of lemon-tinged herbs and spices and the fresh green spunk of basil leaves. In just 20 minutes you’ll be saying “presto” as you throw some shaved Parmesan over your shoulder.

  • 1 Broccoli

Mise en place
Cut the broccoli head into bite-size florets; peel and slice the broccoli stem into rounds, discarding the bottom inch. Peel, halve and small-dice the onion. Pick the basil leaves off the stems, discarding the stems; thinly slice the leaves.

Sauté the vegetables
In a large, high-sided pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the broccoli florets and stems and sauté, stirring frequently, 4 to 6 minutes, until beginning to brown. Add the onion and sauté, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the peas and 2 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); sauté, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until the water has evaporated and the vegetables are tender; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P.

Boil the pasta
While the vegetables cook, bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and stir gently to separate. Boil, 3 to 6 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1 cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta thoroughly. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Combine the pasta
Transfer the cooked pasta to the pan of vegetables. Add the sun-dried tomato pesto, ½ the Parmesan, ½ the basil and the remaining spice blend. Gradually add the reserved cooking water to the pan until you achieve your desired consistency. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes until the pasta is thoroughly coated with the sauce; season with S&P to taste.
