Vibrant Green Rigatoni

with Avocado Pesto & Roasted Broccoli

Cooking time

15 minutes




760 /serving

It’s easy being green! And this inventive Easy Prep pasta recipe is here to prove it. Clever move: after boiling the rigatoni to a tooth-pleasing firmness, you’ll drain the tubes over leafy greens to wilt them. Think out of the pesto box (er, jar) by combining the go-to basil paste with avocado purée, and amping it up with lemon, garlic and feta cheese. Bring roasted broccoli florets to the sauce for a little more bulk—and more green, of course.

Roast the broccoli
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Halve the broccoli (quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ½ the spices and S&P. Roast, adding ½ the garlic and stirring halfway, 12 to 16 min., until tender.

Boil the pasta & wilt the spinach
Meanwhile, place the spinach in a strainer. Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 10 to 11 min., until al dente. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain the pasta over the spinach and return to the pot. Toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Make the avocado pesto
Meanwhile, juice the lemon. Crumble the cheese. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice (start with 1 tbsp), 2 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions), the avocado purée, pesto, ⅔ of the cheese, and the remaining garlic and spices.

Combine the pasta
To the pot of pasta and spinach, add the broccoli, avocado pesto and S&P; toss well. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the reserved cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
