Confetti Pasta Meatless Monday
I recently had a discussion on twitter about red velvet cupcakes and dye, leading up to why it was so important to read labels and check what was coloring the food we eat and feed our families. When I came across this colorful pasta, I was skeptical to say the least.
Since I needed a special dish for a birthday celebration, I was thrilled to learn that this confetti pasta Meatless Monday ingredient was colored with beets, paprika, spinach, turmeric, paprika and squid ink. All the good stuff-and pretty to boot!
This made my cooking for the evening pretty easy. The carnivores could have a burger and everyone would be happy with this dish that screams Let’s Celebrate My Daughter’s Birthday!
- 9 oz bag confetti pasta colored with natural ingredients
- 1 c. fresh spring peas
- 1 c. corn cut off the cob
- 2 med. roasted beets, cut into bite size pieces
- 1/4 c. fresh chopped chives
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to directions. Gently toss in the rest of the ingredients, adding oil to cover lightly. Adjust seasonings and Enjoy!
Happy Meatless Monday-have a great week…
I happened upon this pasta at HomeGoods, but there’s no telling how long it will be there. Sapori Antichi is available on Amazon.
