Attention Pasta lovers, here are some ideas to boost the nutrients of any pasta dish:
First - choose whole grain or vegetable pasta of your choice, instead of white pasta
Second - saute mixed greens, fresh tomatoes with garlic and toss into the pasta instead of using bottled or canned tomato sauce that contains unnecessary added sugar and salt
Third - roast some pine nuts and add to the pasta and green mixture to boost the protein content
Fourth - use fresh basil as a final garnish - basil is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and contains Vitamin A which is good for vision.
Fifth - Buon Appetito! This is a nutrient dense, healthy vegan dish to enjoy!.
