I’m giddy once my spring cleaning is done. The same thing happens when I spring clean anything edible found in my kitchen. And since I’m a huge advocate of preventing food waste, I’m basically giddy x 2 when I have a clean kitchen and no waste! So, here’s how this “clean” recipe came to be.
What’s one of my favorite ways to go vegan without giving up a thing? This bowl of yum! So, if you happen to be looking for a comforting pasta dish that’s actually good for you, here you go! And if you need to go gluten-free, this recipe is a winner, too. The pasta is made from red lentils. The fresh pesto is accented with lemon, red pepper flakes, and smoked paprika in lieu of parmesan cheese. And the tomatoes add pops of vibrant color and bursts of juiciness. Altogether, this simple Mediterranean-style pasta dish is a complete meal in a bowl. Hint: It’s a scrumptious pick for a Meatless Monday!
