Quick Broccoli & Bean Pasta

by Kortney Campbell on July 23, 2012

This pasta is one of those dishes that practically comes together by itself. It’s great for a night that you get home late from work & need something healthy in your belly. The broccoli in this dish can be swapped with brussels sprouts and cannellini beans can be swapped with whatever beans you want.

Here’s how I made it (sorry the recipe is not too exact).

What you’ll need:

  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1-3 cloves of garlic
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Spaghetti


  • Heat a pot of water for the spaghetti on the stove.
  • Chop the garlic, onion and broccoli sauté in a pan with olive oil. While that is cooking, put your pasta in the boiling water.
  • Once your broccoli is almost finished cooking add the drained can of cannellini beans and a handful of sun died tomatoes. Sauté until broccoli is dark green, and still a little crisp.
  • Drain the spaghetti, drizzle with olive oil & top with the broccoli mixture.

There you go, you have a healthy, inexpensive vegan meal in less than 30 minutes. Sometimes we forgo the pasta all together and just eat the broccoli mixture by itself. Either way, it’s quite delicious!
