Broccoli or Spinach? (dinner help please)

Ok Df and I have completely changed the way we are eating, I went totally vegatarian and am honestly vegan M-F (I only cheat with dairy on the weekends), He is just on a low calories, low fat diet and only really eats chicken and turkey(meat wise). But being healthy means not going out to eat on the weekends like we used to so I'm thinking tomorrow I'll make a nice pesto pasta (whole wheat pasta) dish.

The problem is I dont know what veggie to put into the pasta. I was thinking broccoli or Spinach, but I'm really not sure. Also if you know any other veggies that would taste good mixed into that sauce please let me know also.

BTW I'm craving pesto sauce, so it has to go with the pesto.

Thanks Ladies

I would think broccoli would compete with the pesto flavor....I would go for spinach.

Asparagus or zucchini would be good too

I think I would do zucchini and a small amount of fresh, largely diced tomatoes.
