Pasta is more fun when it’s colorful and clean!

I tried another recipe from The Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook yesterday!  I am happy to say I’ve been putting the book to good use lately!  This time I tried the tri-color pasta with tuna, spinach, and artichoke hearts.

This is a pescatarian recipe so it included tuna.  I don’t eat tuna but that definitely didn’t stop me from trying this dish out!  I substituted it with chickpeas instead for a nice boost of clean protein!

The dish was amazing.  The combination of the basil, dill, and lemon made it very refreshing.  I ate the dish warm but I think it would be really awesome cold, kind of like a pasta salad.  There was so much left over (that’s a good thing!) so I am super excited to have it again today for lunch.  It’ll probably be even better because all of the flavours will have had time to mingle and set in.  It’s going to be a party for my tastebuds, I am sure!

I hope you’re ready for the next recipe from the cookbook.  Here’s a hint: it includes peanut butter and chocolate…and it’s clean.  Yes, I just said that!  If you missed the first recipe I shared (Seven Citrus Salad with Mint), check it out here!

Make sure to check and see if you won a pair of G-LOVES!  I announced the winners in yesterday’s post.

Are you a pasta person?

Any fun Sunday plans?

    I’m actually not a huge pasta fan, but I must admit that pasta looks pretty delicious! Can’t wait to hear the chocolate peanut butter recipe! My favorite combination :)

    We are having vegetarian pasta for dinner tonight.. lots of tomatoes, spinach, onions, garlic, artichoke hearts, freshy grated parmesan cheese and beans. I love all kinds of pasta and we eat it fairly often. Different every time depending on what is in the fridge!

    Ah – I clicked the window shut as soon as I saw tuna on the ingredients – but then I thought, “wait, isn’t she a vegetarian?”, so I opened the window again – so glad you tried a substitution that we eat too. I look forward to trying it – thanks!

    I have noticed you are no longer eating meat? (i think?) Can I ask what made you switch to a vegetarian diet? And has it been hard for you to maintain lean results and build muscle without it? Ive found it harder for me!

    I am not a huge pasta person but this recipe sounds pretty good and brilliant idea about the chickpeas for tuna. I love tuna but not really in my salad for some reason?

    We had a rainy sunday so after church we just relaxed and lounged around the house. It was pretty nice.
