if you’re looking for a nutrient packed dinner that’s made within ten minutes, you have to try my Super Healthy Green Machine Pasta! it’s packed with tons of green goodness like spinach, basil and peas!
even though the flavors are super simple, the sauce really packs a punch.
it’s fantastic for whipping up in the kitchen last minute when you want something nutritious!
serve with your favorite gluten free pasta and you have yourself the ultimate dinner. i love this sauce with chickpea pasta by the way. banza is one of my fave brands to eat it with.
ok, the sauce for Super Healthy Green Machine Pasta is really outstanding thanks to the unique combo of flavors.
they’re not that out there, but you might be a little surprised! the creamy factor comes from coconut yogurt and walnuts! so cool, right?
walnuts are my favorite type of nuts to use in sauces but feel free to make a swap! you could go with pine nuts for more of a pesto vibe or even cashews.
cashews are always a great option because they make the CREAMIEST sauces.
Super Healthy Green Machine Pasta is made in the blender by the way, so there’s less of a mess and it’s done within no time.
you just need to cook your favorite pasta according to package directions.
also, i added spinach and frozen peas. once the pasta is done cooking, you can add the spinach, peas and a little bit of veggie broth to steam them.
that only takes 2-3 minutes and adds some extra nutrients along with heartiness.
feel free to add any sort of veggies you want though because anything will work well!
