This is hands down one of my favourite dinners. Trust me. You’ll eat it and say “huh, this isn’t white pasta?” It’s so flavourful and comforting, and hits the spot every time. I love keeping this meal balanced and healthy by adding in some cooked broccoli or cauliflower for extra fibre and nutrients.

The pasta I used for this recipe is called “Maria’s”. It’s gluten free, full of fibre, and the kale pea noodle is the best texture. When I’m cooking pasta at home I stick to chickpea or quinoa noodles (especially I order whatever I want when I’m at a restaurant!). Pro tip: add in zucchini noodle for an even more nutrient-dense meal!
