2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the pappardelle

  • Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil.
Add the pappardelle a few noodles at a time and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the pappardelle, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water.
While the water heats and the pappardelle cooks, prepare the vegetables.


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Trim the stem ends from the maitake mushrooms; cut the mushrooms into 1-inch slices.
  • Trim the root ends from the baby broccoli; cut the broccoli into 2-inch lengths.
  • Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; coarsely chop any large pieces.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook undisturbed until starting to brown on one side, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender and the broccoli is lightly browned and crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes.


Finish the pasta

To the pan with the vegetables, stir in the roasted red peppers and olives and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Stir in the pappardelle, reserved pasta cooking water, and pesto and toss to coat. Cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pappardelle and vegetables to individual bowls, sprinkle with the Parmesan, and serve.
