So last night I made a Creamy Pesto and Broccoli with Farfalle because I was half lazy and half not.

Believe it or not, but it is possible!

I wanted to make this but only had prepared pesto sooooo I used that with some heavy cream and some other stuff and BAM!

It was yummy…. so its ok, I am excused for being semi-lazy.
