Lemony Broccoli Pasta is bright and fresh main dish to reach for any time. It’s perfect for a meatless meal option or as a main dish to delight in during the spring season!
Sunday dinner and pasta go hand-and-hand – at least it did with my family when I was growing up. To this day, Sundays are usually pasta days in my kitchen and this Lemony Broccoli Pasta is perfect this spring.
Lemony Broccoli Pasta
With simple ingredients – basically broccoli, lemon, garlic, shallot, olive oil and seasonings, this pasta meal couldn’t be easier to make. The broccoli brings the beautiful, vibrant green to your plate and adds nice flavor (and fiber).
Since my mom has been visiting and we’ve been eating more than both of us are used to (you know how that goes!), she suggested we make a simple dish of Lemony Broccoli Pasta. I’m so glad she suggested it because it’s so easy to make, and we used ONE POT for a no-fuss prep.
She said she ate this often growing up in Italy for the some of the same reasons I like it: It’s easy to make, budget friendly, and so good! You’ll love the zingy lemony vibe. I added Parmesan cheese just before serving, and…yum!
This is the perfect springtime dish, and I used the very last of my lemons from the backyard tree – so sad to have to wait for the next season’s batch. I love my lemons so much!
Broccoli has so many nutritional benefits. But also, Lemony Broccoli Pasta is almost a complete meal – no need for veggies on the side since they’re part of the main show!
Do you turn to favorite pasta dishes often? I’m guilty! It’s nice to have a simple dish on hand for when time is tight. To mix things up a little more, try one of these easy-to-make pasta meals:
- Pasta Primavera in Light Cream Sauce
- Pasta with Smashed Peas and Ricotta
- Kale Pesto Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes and White Beans
We eat a lot of broccoli in my home, and if you’re a fan (even if you’re on the fence about this green veggie) you might try my Roasted Broccoli and Swiss Quiche for breakfast or brunch.
And keep this fun Broccoli Waldorf Salad recipe on hand for the warm weather months and all the picnics and barbecues around the corner
Take my word for it: Lemony Broccoli Pasta is a great spring dish that is simple, simple, simple! It’s filling, flavorful, and so easy to make (don’t forget – only one pan to get dirty)!
