Sautéed Vegetable and Chicken Pasta & Giveaway

Sauteed Vegetable and Chicken Pasta 001

Ohhh, you know what?

You can have a sauce and pasta with your dinner and still be healthy.
There is no heavy cream, no parmesan cheese and no butter.
uh huh, no butter…kinda depressing…but not really.
One might think to have a sauce you need , butter and cheese..nope, you need neither.

The key is making a “slurry”. Making a slurry is simple, Mix corn starch with a cold liquid
But this was soooooo delicious and it’s healthy. SCORE.

Another way to up the nutritional value of a pasta meal is to kick the white flour pasta to the curb and replace it with a whole grain pasta.

Barilla make a wonderful Multi Grain Pasta.

Barilla Multi Grain pasta delivers 44 % more protein and almost twice as much fiber then traditional pasta.

See all of that delicious sauce? YUM
Sauteed Veggie and Chicken Pasta

This is honestly one of my favorite pasta/chicken dishes.
I am sure once you make it, it will be yours too!

    I switched to whole grain pasta. It was different and took a little getting used to (seems like the texture is slightly different) but now I prefer it. Is it just me or does it seem to stay a little firmer? I’ve never overcooked it and turned it to mush like I have with white pasta.

    I’ve just recently switched to whole wheat pasta across the board. I try to use whole grains whenever I can but I just couldn’t wrap my head around the pasta, now I don’t know what my problem was – it tastes good and is more nutritionally sound, what’s not to like?
