Pasta!!

I just made this delicious pasta that at first bite tasted like a veggie lovers pizza.  Probably because I used onions, garlic, tomatoes, and kale saut√©ed in extra virgin olive oil over pasta with parmesan sprinkled on top.  I discovered this high protein pasta when Tom and I were on our meat fast for a week.  It seriously has almost as much protein as a chicken breast!  Plus, the huge benefit is the fiber that keeps you full and not craving sweets!
I was recently reading a health book advocating eating pasta and I thought, I must check this out.  Well, it's true, pasta is good for you!  I used to think it contained way too many carbohydrates, but it also contains so much fiber and protein that we need.  Now watch what you put on it all you mac and cheese lovers.  I'm talking about a good quality pasta with veggies on top!
So have a pasta night, but skip the tomato sauce or cream sauce, use extra virgin olive oil instead to saute your pasta in for a few minutes after you boil it.  It gives it that restaurant like flavor. Then add some veggies with a parmesan sprinkle, and there you have a complete healthful meal.

  1. Sounds superb and cheap because most of the ingredients are staples. I'm going to buy some kale and good quality pasta today and make the dish this weekend! Can't wait!
