Ingredients

  • 10 oz. whole wheat penne
  • 1 lb. broccoli
  • 1 cup reduced-fat firm silken tofu
  • 2 cups low-sodium jarred pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped black olives, preferably kalamata

Preparation

Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add pinch of salt and pasta, stirring to prevent sticking. Cook pasta according to package directions, or until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain pasta, reserving 3/4 cup cooking water.

Meanwhile, steam broccoli until just tender, about 7 minutes.

Put tofu into food processor or blender, and purée until smooth. In medium saucepan, combine tofu, pasta sauce, olives and enough reserved pasta cooking water to create a creamy sauce. Cook sauce over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through (do not boil). Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired.

Transfer pasta to serving bowl; add broccoli, and toss to mix. Top with sauce, and serve.
