Chris B's famous vegan and gluten free Mushroom Basil Pesto Pasta

For those of you who have known Chris B and me for a long time know how strange this must seem.
 (that we are posting recipes and offering health tips)
Thanks for the recipe Chris. I can't wait to make it. 
If any of you get a chance to try it before me I would love to hear about it.

1 Packet of brown rice pasta
2 packets of shitake mushrooms (7 oz)
1 packet of basil (4 oz)
1 packet of spinach (6 oz)
1 packet of raw pine nuts (8 oz)
1 red onion
6 cloves of garlic
1- crown of broccoli
1 sprig of rosemary
1 cup of red wine (add to taste, while tasting)
olive oil
red chili flakes

Using a food processor use half the packets of spinach, basil, pine nuts and add a packet of mushrooms for the pesto puree along with 3 cloves of garlic and 3/4 of the onion and rosemary. Add olive oil and a cup of red wine to the puree along with all of your spices.
In a sauce pan add the remaining ingredients to the pesto at medium  heat. I usually add a little more red wine and bring it to a reduction while cooking the pesto.
