Creamy Garlic and Vegetables Pasta

Fresh, easy, healthy… scrumptious!

I was raised in a very italian family and we had pasta all the time. So when I need a comfort food, what do I turn to? Pasta. But to be honest, tomato sauce in a jar or can just doesn’t cut it. And I didn’t have hours to stew up a homemade pasta sauce. So I asked myself, “what other flavors might taste good on my favorite comfort food?” This is what I came up with, and it tasted GREAT!

Cooked tomatoes give you extra licopene, a super power anti-oxidant. Not to mention all the lovely health benefits that come with asparagus, such as an improved sex drive. Plus, with unrefined olive oil, you’re getting healthy heart benefits too. I never forget to leave out the good old immune-boosting cholesterol-lowering garlic from any pasta dish I create. And there’s the added bonus of the creamy texture of nutritional yeast that gives you loads of B-Vitamins.
