Pesto & Peppers Pasta
Savor the rich flavors of creamy pesto sauce as it clings to the corkscrew-like grooves of the chickpea rotini — and you may also want some whole grain bread on-hand, to soak up every last drop!
Meal Highlights & Benefits:
- The taste of summer all year ’round: Italian-inspired, fabulously fragrant, oil-free, toil-free, and mouth-watering!
- Full of prebiotics, 24 grams of protein, & amazingly heart-healthy
- Zesty basil (a digestion booster) is paired with powerfully pleasant garlic (unmatched for anti-infection & anti-cancer powers), along with cheezy immune-boosting nutritional yeast, and bright pectin-rich lemon, to create an intensely complex green sauce.
- Savory pistachios (a top source of natural melatonin for sound sleep) filled with heart-healthy Omega-3 fats
- Vibrant green peas (legumes), loaded with micronutrients like osteoporosis-fighting vitamin K, makes for a magical pesto bursting with fiber & flavor!
- For the finishing phytonutrient pow: sweet red & yellow bell peppers, high in vitamin C & carotenoids, along with chewy lycopene-rich sun-dried organic tomatoes.
