Who can think about fall without thinking about pumpkins? These glorious fruits are both festive to look at and incorporate into sweet or savory dishes. Loaded with beta-carotene and fiber, they’re also excellent for maintaining a healthy weight and boosting your immune system.
If you’re looking for something different and quick for this season, enjoy my Creamy Pumpkin Pasta recipe.
It’s so good and also high in protein!
Do you enjoy healthy pasta? What’s your favorite recipe?
- Brown rice pasta (instead of the enriched, white stuff)
