This Gluten Free Veggie Pasta in Olive Oil sauce would be perfect for your Meatless Monday meals or as a great side dish to your main course. This months Degustabox had a box of Tolerant Organic Green Lentil and Kale Pasta inside and I thought it would be perfect to go with this long time family favorite. My husband has been making this pasta for years with pasta such as angel hair or spaghetti. And since he had never actually written the recipe down for his olive oil sauce pasta, I thought this would be the perfect time to get that recipe down.
You can also use regular pasta but if you are using Tolerant’s pasta there are a couple of things you should know:
- When you put the pasta in the boiling water keep an eye on it or it could boil over quickly.
- The water will be cloudy and foamy but that’s normal when cooking with this type of pasta so be sure to use plenty of water.
Something else you should know, I really like this pasta. And I can see myself using this pasta to lighten things up a little when I want to take in more plant based proteins and nutrients. I love that it’s certified organic, vegan, gluten-free and non-gmo. If you can get past the cloudy water then I would definitely recommend this pasta!
