20 Clean-Eating Pasta Recipes
Pasta Florentine With Grilled Chicken
Charring your chicken breasts for ten minutes adds that je ne sais quoi to a classic French dish. This version uses an entire bag of baby spinach.
Butternut Squash Carbonara
For creamier, tastier spaghetti carbonara, you need just one secret ingredient. Nope, it’s not butter or cream. It’s butternut squash. Feed this dinner to your kids and they’ll gobble it up—no need to tell them it’s oozing with hidden veggies.
Creamy Vegan Pasta With Swiss Chard And Tomatoes
Thanks to Swiss chard, this dish is packed with nutrients that are vital in a vegan diet (vitamins C, A, K and B6, magnesium, iron and potassium). Best of all, it’s swirled with non-dairy whipped cream and practically melts in your mouth.
It's rich but totally virtuous, and the whole meal takes just 30 minutes to prepare. All you need to have on hand are a couple of ripe avos. (Cue singing angels.)
