A few of my favorite super quick pasta dishes are Pasta with Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and OilAngel Hair Pasta with Zucchini and TomatoesFettuccini with Winter Greens and a Poached Egg.


I made this yesterday for lunch and Karina, my oldest daughter loved it. I didn’t want to use white pasta, but I didn’t think whole wheat pasta would be right here so I used a my favorite gluten-free fusilli from DeLallo which has the same taste as white pasta, with a perfect al dente texture. If you can’t find it near you, you can order it here. You can also, of course use any pasta you wish.

This recipe serves six, but you can easily halve it to serve 3 if you don’t want to make as much. Hope you enjoy! If you make this recipe, take a picture and share on Instagram with a hashtag #skinnytaste for a chance to get a regram!
