Pasta with Broccoli Walnut Pesto – delicious meatless dinner recipe. Homemade broccoli pesto is ready in minutes! The broccoli lover in your life is going to love this one!

My kids are obsessed with broccoli.

Have we talked about that?

All 3 of them would happily eat an entire pan of roasted broccoli for dinner every night if I let them.

I literally can’t keep broccoli in the house. I buy bags and bags of the pre-cut kind and it seems to just disappear.

There’s absolutely nothing about broccoli that appeals to me unless it’s covered with mayo and tossed with dried cranberries so I don’t get it.

Okay guys, dinner time.

Does the whole family sit down at the table?

Does everyone do their own thing?

I’ll admit, I’m terrible at dinner time these days. I’m a stickler for the kids at the table all together, but more often than not, I’m in the kitchen working on the dishes or doing a 2nd batch of biscuits or whatever needs to be done. I’m close enough to hear their conversation but not actually participating, you know?

Then they want to watch videos on their tablets so no one’s actually talking to anyone anyway.

And I’m feeling like it’s time to get rid of that mealtime boredom and bring some fun to the table.

Cranberry Almond Broccoli Salad - a lightened up version of the classic!

Heeeey guys, happy Monday! Fresh week! I feel like we all need a fresh start, huh?

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK?! I cannot. How did this happen?

I haven’t planned a thing! I have a turkey in my freezer though so I know that’s happening, at least. And I’ll make the dressing that my family always makes because that’s my favorite. And I’m sure there will be pie. There’s always pie.

Another thing I also always make is broccoli salad. But first, that bowl!

Okay, guys. Two things.

1. Red Velvet Oreos! They’re out. Go find them! I gave each of my children 2 and then I ate the rest. To be fair, it’s a much smaller package than the regular Oreos.

2. I’m so bored with The Bachelor. Is it Chris? Is it the girls? I don’t know. I’m not even recording it anymore. I just catch bits and pieces as I go about my business annoying my husband and pinning food that I want to eat.

Unrelated: I made pasta for dinner last night! Bacon Tortellini Bake to be exact.

It’s been a really long time since all 3 of my kids licked their plates clean. No one complained about the broccoli. No one complained that they don’t like pasta “made with water”. No one said that they don’t like bacon today but maybe they will tomorrow.

I thought it was really tasty too and I went into thinking it was be too alfredo-y for me because if there’s one thing I hate in this world, it’s alfredo sauce. Ugggghhhh.

I would like to tell you that I skipped dinner last night to accommodate all the Oreos but the reality is that I grabbed a tortellini each time I walked past the casserole dish. And umm… I walked past it a lot.

This was a super simple, 30 minute meal that I will be making over and over again.
