Expert Tips & FAQ:

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!

Delicious! I noticed the picture shows red onion but it is not in the ingredient list. I might add this next time along with some fresh basil as garnish.

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thanks for you comment! Definitely add some to your recipe next time for additional flavour 🙂

I haven’t made this recipe yet but I plan to later this week.
Do you think I could omit the Parmesan entirely or would that change the flavor?

Maria Koutsogiannis

Should be fine, use vegan parm if that’s why you would want to omit it! If not, it’s fine without just make sure you well season it!
