Yes, I admit it some days I don't actually want to eat healthy! Some days all I crave are things that will only momentarily satisfy me, that typically results in a bad stomach ache. Tonight, I really wanted one of my favorite dishes my grandma used to make me. Fettuccini Alfredo. After realizing that I could probably never make it as good as she would, I still wanted a version of it to fulfill the craving. In comes my healthy pasta primavera. The most "unhealthy" part of this dish is the Alfredo sauce, but I'm okay with that. It could be way worse and like I said, it's scratching that itch.
Prego Light homestyle Alfredo sauce
Banza chickpea spaghetti
1/2 white onion
1/2 yellow zucchini
1 cup of broccoli
1 cup of chopped kale
1 cup of mushrooms
8 pieces of shrimp
Olive oil / Pepper / Garlic
Slice up your vegetables, toss them in a frying pan with garlic, olive oil and pepper. Add shrimp when vegetables are almost done. Simultaneously boil water to cook your pasta. Once both pasta and vegetables are done, combine in pan and add Alfredo sauce. Mix together and serve!
This meal is so easy to make, prep time/cook time/clean up time, if you are swift like me can be under 30 minutes. I like to clean while I cook so I can enjoy my food and not have to clean after! But regardless, this is such an easy recipe for a quick meal, family dinner or even a meal prep. There are tons of variations you can do like different sauce, if you are avoiding dairy maybe a garlic and oil. You can try different pastas depending on your needs like gluten free, whole wheat, etc. Even change up the vegetables. I used the vegetables I had at home, which made it that much more convenient but really any kind works!
