Swanson® Broth does double duty in this recipe. It replaces the oil for a light take on a fresh summer pesto and it gives the farro a boost of flavor while it simmers. Make the pesto ahead of time and toss with farro and veggies just before serving.

Add 1/3 cup broth, the basil, parsley, pine nuts, cheese and lemon zest in a blender. Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.
Heat the farro and remaining broth in a 2 1/2-quart saucepan and heat over high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the farro is tender and the broth is absorbed. Remove the farro to a large bowl and let cool for 30 minutes.
Add the zucchini, corn and onion to the farro. Add the broth mixture , lemon juice and salt and toss to coat. Sprinkle with additional thinly sliced fresh basil, if desired.
