I am a true pasta lover and I don’t think I even knew just how much until I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy and couldn’t eat it anymore. In addition to not being able to eat it, pasta on a regular basis isn’t such a great idea, so I sought out healthier versions (that had more nutrient-density and were less refined than the gluten-free options out there). I started seeing spiralizers on Instagram, and knew I had to get one!
My all time favorite growing up was bowtie pasta with pesto sauce. This dish brings me right back to my childhood. Because most store-bought pesto sauces have some less-than-whole-foods as ingredients, AND generally have dairy, I like to make my own! I add shrimp for a little protein, too.
