Who doesn’t love pasta? It’s easy to make, tastes great, and goes perfectly with any topping.

Unfortunately, regular pasta is high in calories and full of empty carbs. Plus, it feels like there is an indigestible brick in your stomach once you're done.

This pasta recipe is full of protein and fiber, and will leave you feeling lighter and healthier.

And instead of the typical tomato sauce, try making your own creamy avocado sauce!

It will tie together your pasta nicely and leave you satisfied after your meal.

This recipe is tasty and packed with protein and essential nutrients. And done in under one hour!
