Calling all pasta lovers - this one's for you!


As a third-generation Italian who’s a major foodie (and an even bigger fan of pasta!), it was important to me to create a pasta dish that’s reflective of my background while also balancing my health goals.


I’ll be honest and say that I’ve never met a pasta that I didn’t get along with. That’s exactly why I aim to have pasta at least once a week. All that being said, I am living proof that you can enjoy your pasta-loving nights while still hitting your fitness goals! It doesn’t have to be one or the other.


It really comes down to the types of pasta that you choose and the ingredients you incorporate in said pasta! (I love using Chickapea pasta - since it's packed with protein and fibre to fuel my busy workdays while keeping me satisfied and energized all day! I usually get the variety pack, linked here.)


That’s why I love to include ingredients like:

  • turkey bacon - for protein

  • peas + fresh arugula - to add veggies and nutrients

  • crumbled goat cheese + parmesan - for healthy fats and flavour

Mix it all into a healthy cream sauce and you’ve got one very happy pasta lover!
