Broccoli, leeks, whole grain spaghetti topped with an herby blend, and a side of sourdough 💚

This dish was inspired by the spaghetti & leek dish shared by @thetwopeas22 about a week ago. 🙏

I water-sauteed frozen broccoli and green parts of the leeks on medium heat, covered. The bright green achieved by this method is gorgeous. When the broccoli was thawed enough to take out and cut into smaller pieces (Costco sells florets big enough for the Green Giant), I added the washed leek whites to soften with the rest.

The topping was fun, and I made it on the fly. It has 8 shaved Brazil nuts (it IS the 'fourth', right @michaelgregermd? 😆), copious amounts of dry parsley, jarred minced garlic, minced red onion, a pinch of red pepper flakes, a pinch of dry basil, a teaspoon of nooch, a bit of salt and pepper, and I briefly cooked this in about 1/4-1/2 cup of the pasta water.

I would definitely make this again!
