I’ve been craving delicious pasta dishes lately. When I’m choosing a good noodle to use for my meal, I always read labels and see if I can find one that has whole ingredients as well as a minimal number of ingredients. Usually, I will purchase either a rice, bean, or 100% whole wheat pasta. Those I have found are all natural, contain zero additives and preservatives, and are good for your health. I always top my pasta dish with an organic no sugar added tomato sauce and a heaping pile of fresh steamed vegetables. I like my meals to be simple, quick to prepare, and healthy. Once you start adding too many processed ingredients to meals, it takes away from the healing benefits of the food and turns a dish into something artificial and unhealthy. Here is a simple pasta recipe I made the other night that I hope you will enjoy.
