Looking for a light, healthy pasta dish for Meatless Monday? Try this orecchiette (“little ears” — but you can also use shells) with roasted broccoli and walnuts from Real Simple magazine. I recommend adding extra broccoli and more Parmesan cheese, and if you want to up the veggie content even more, roast some baby tomatoes along with the broccoli, or add a few handfuls of frozen peas to the pasta water 30 seconds before draining it. In the version pictured above I added a whole head of roasted cauliflower and used whole wheat fusili noodles.
