this easy vegetarian white bean & veggie pesto pasta comes together in minutes and is sure to please the whole household – a great option for an easy weeknight meal!


  • 1 box pasta
  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
  • 12 cups veggies (I used broccoli and tomatoes, but you can use any you want!)
  • Spinach walnut pesto (or you can use store-bought!)
  • Optional for topping: salt, pepper, freshly chopped basil and freshly shaven parmesan cheese


  1. Cook pasta according to pasta instructions.  Drain, rinse and set aside for later use when finished.
  2. While pasta cooks, heat olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat.  Add veggies and sauté until just soft (about 3-5 minutes).  Add beans and cooked pasta and toss to combine, cooking another few minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, add pesto and toss to combine.
  4. Top with desired toppings and serve.


  • Pasta will keep for up to 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
