Let's Make It
In a medium saucepan boil broccoli florets with enough water to cover. Approximately 5 minutes. Remove florets with a slotted spoon and place on a plate to cool. Reserve the water to cook pasta in.
In a food processor, pulse broccoli, parsley, 2 tablespoons pistachios, parmesan cheese and dressing until finely chopped and combined; approximately 30 seconds.
Cook farfalle pasta according to package. Reserve ½ cup of cooking water. Drain and return pasta to the pot.
Over low heat, add the pesto and chopped peppers to the pot and ¼ cup of reserved water. Toss to combine. Add more water to thin out pesto if necessary. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until sweet peppers begin to soften.
Serve with a baby arugula salad dressed with remaining Italian dressing. Sprinkle with remaining pistachios.
