Broccoli and Pasta Sauce

I wanted to share a gem of a recipe that we adapted from some other recipes. Tonight we were debating what to eat and we really like a pasta dish that we vary. We particularly like a broccoli ball recipe we got of another website called Vegan Rich. I highly recommend this because it is very good and very nutritious. However making the broccoli balls is somewhat time-consuming. Option number two is sauteing asparagus and then adding pasta sauce to the asparagus when done.

Well not having fresh asparagus tonight I am going to try a mix of the two recipes.


  • 1 head of broccoli with florets cut into bite size piecesKSmarinara_1024x1024
  • 1 onion chopped
  • Red Lentil Pasta2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 box of Organic Red Lentil Penne Pasta (Explore Cuisine) purchased from Costco
  • 1 jar of Kirkland Organic Marinara Sauce (2lb) from Costco.


  1. Add oil to pan and saute chopped onions in large pan until the onions are soft and translucent
  2. Add garlic and saute for one minute
  3. Add broccoli and saute until done
  4. Add Marinara sauce and warm the sauce letting the flavors blend.
  5. Don’t forget to cook the pasta.

We love this recipe with asparagus and I’m sure it will work great with broccoli.

I will add pictures later.
