My herbed ricotta and lentil penne pasta is oh so creamy and delicious! It’s a recipe that’s not only healthy and good for your gut health but also one of my favourite vegetarian meal prep recipes. It’s packed with protein, fibre and wholegrain, healthy carbs to keep you nourished and full all afternoon long. Comment below if you make it and let me know what you think!
Who loves pasta night?! Well you guys are in for a treat today as I have a super delicious and gut healthy recipe for you!
This recipe is not only super easy and healthy but it’s packed full of plant based ingredients to nourish your gut! I used the spiral chickpea San Remo pasta range which is packed full of gut loving fibre & protein but you can honestly use any type of pulse pasta (eg. chickpea pasta, lentil pasta). I love using the pulse pastas in dishes as they are super high in protein and fibre compared to regular wheat based pasta and they are also gluten free for anyone with Coeliac Disease.
Hop tip: Did you know that when you cook & cool pasta it creates resistance starch which feeds the good bacteria in your gut and can help strengthen the lining of your gut too! This is the same for any type of pasta (including wheat pasta) and also rice and potato! Listen to Leanne’s podcast for more gut health knowledge bombs.
