Broccoli Pasta

There are many vegetables that my little guy will eat, but for some reason he will not touch broccoli.  I think it is the texture- he just spits it out.  Needless to say, I was challenged to find a different way to get this superfood into his little belly.  So I just created a little sauce instead. It is SUPER easy and gets perfectly lodged into corkscrew pasta, which he gobbles up! 

Boil ½ box of whole wheat corkscew pasta

Steam a bunch of broccoili

Dice 1/4- 1/2 of a white onion

Put steamed broccoli, diced onion, and 1 Teaspoon chopped garlic, and 2 teaspoons olive oil into food processor with a couple of tablespoons of parmesean cheese (optional) 

Pulse until chopped finely

Mix together with pasta and serve!

Note:  if you feel like broccoli mixture is too dry and isn't sticking to the pasta, add a little more olive oil to make it more pasty
