Sund Dried Tomato and Spinach Whole Wheat Pasta

Here it is, another favorite pasta recipe. I have a couple more to post, which will do in the coming weeks.

This recipe it is a little bit more involved if you will, although it will not take you more than 25 minutes to put together. I say more involve because you have to use the food processor to puree the sun dried tomatoes, garlic and oil.

If you are making this pasta you can add pepper flakes and a little bit of Parmesan cheese as well. Never-the-less this has always been a hit when served at parties. Hope you like it.

  11. This dish looks beautiful and I can’t wait to buy the Chickapea & Lentil pasta, but I was wondering whether you could recommend a substitute for the half and half in the cream sauce. All the other ingredients are so healthy and delicious, but the half and half has a bit too much cholesterol and fat for my diet. I will make the recipe without it first, and I know the sauce will not be creamy, but probably just as delicious and refreshing.
