  • 2 to 3 servings pasta
  • 1 cup packed broccoli florets cut into small bite sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup marinated artichokes drained, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup packed chopped fresh parsley and basil
  • Red chili flakes for serving
  • Fresh herbs for serving


  • Cook the pasta in salted water until just barely al dente. Drain.
  • Meanwhile, cut and saute the broccoli florets in 2 tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium heat for 5 minutes until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. It is fine if they get a bit browned.
  • Add the cooked pasta and the remaining ingredients and cook together for another minute or two in the pan until pasta is cooked.
