Everything Green Pasta Salad


green pasta

A spinach ‘pesto’ makes this pasta salad healthy with lots of iron and calcium! 


1 box of Pasta

6-7 big handfuls Spinach

1 can Canellini Beans

1 can Chickpeas

1 tsp Garlic powder

1 Lemon, zest and juice

2 T roasted sesame seeds

1/4 c Tahini

1 1/2 c Water

Basil, Fresh

Herbs, any combination you like. I used rosemary, oregano, basil, parsley.

Salt and Pepper

Olive Oil

1 head Broccoli

1. Cook pasta.

2. In food processor add: beans, lemon, tahini, sesame seeds, salt and pepper, spinach, fresh basil, and water.

3. Steam broccoli.

4. Add spinach ‘pesto’ blend to the pasta so everything is evenly coated.

5. Mix in steamed broccoli.

This recipe came about by me adding too much water to a hummus that I was making. I decided to use it with pasta and I LOVE how this accident turned delicious!
