What are the health benefits of this pasta?

This pasta is loaded with yummy flavors that come from a lot of healthy ingredients. First off, we have the kale or spinach. Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It’s loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, iron, and more. Spinach is also super healthy for you, so if you aren’t a kale person, choosing spinach isn’t a bad option. Spinach is a source of vitamins K, A, C, and folate. It also has iron which is always beneficial in anyone’s diet, but especially if you are vegetarian.

Outside of the greens, we have zucchini and tomatoes in this recipe. Zucchini is rich in antioxidants and nutrients, plus it helps aid in healthy digestion. Tomatoes are a major source of an important antioxidant called lycopene, and are a great source of vitamin C which is perfect for this time of year!

That’s only to list some of the benefits of these yummy ingredients!

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much for the love, Alysa!

Jessie Mead

As a was putting all of the ingredients into the pot my husband walked by and looked at it sceptically. By the time he took his first bite we knew that this would be a staple in our house.

Maria is somehow able to make every recipe amazing. Sometimes I’m so surprised by the depth of flavours in her dishes. Many of them taste like they have been served at a restaurant.
Thanks again Maria, another great recipe!

Maria Koutsogiannis

I am so glad you loved this recipe as much as we did!

Darlene Owens

Made it but you mr post had purple onions, but it was not in the list of ingredients, should I have added them ?

Maria Koutsogiannis

Sorry, I forgot red onions in the ingredients list, it wouldn’t have made much of a difference though as they just go sweet and add texture. Was it good without them though?! That’s what matters 😉

Darlene Owens

Oh yes totally delicious 😋 whole family loved it.

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much hun!

Sophie

I made this the other night and it was DELICIOUS! So garlicky, salty but fresh at the same time! I was worried it would stick or the pasta wouldn’t cook but I kept adding a little water and stirring and it was perfect! So healthy too with all those greens rammed in! Can’t wait to make again – thank you!

Maria Koutsogiannis

THANK YOU SO MUCH, SOPHIE! make our meat sauce next, it’s next level and won’t even know its all plants!

Camille Christodoulou

Hi Maria!
Do you think the parmesan could realistically be subbed with a plant based parmesan (generally cashew based) ? Thanks a ton 🙂

Maria Koutsogiannis

Yes, that type of stuff is totally forgivable… impossible to ruin a recipe by making a small sub like that! Lemme know what you think!
