How to Make It
Prep Caramelized Onions
Chop onions and cook in a pan with olive oil. Stir as needed, adding water as needed to prevent sticking.
Prep Pesto Sauce
Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse to a fine consistency. Can also use store-bought.
Prep Broccoli + Chickpeas
Cut broccoli into small florets and steam or boil to desired tenderness. Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas, or cook from raw.
Cook your pasta of choice according to package directions. I use whole wheat pasta for this recipe and it works great!
Mix and Serve
To your cooked pasta, add pesto sauce, caramelized onions, steamed broccoli and chickpeas. Toss until everything is well coated with pesto.
Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Reheat in microwave or on stovetop over low heat.
