But for those of us who cringe at the thought of giving up pasta (hi), we’re in luck because there are tons of great-for-you seasonal pasta recipes that can come to the rescue.
Making small changes like switching to a quinoa-based pasta or making your own sauce with veggies like pumpkin or avocado can turn your dish from a festival of carbs into one that’ll give you tons of nutritional benefits. Might we also add that they taste amazing and will instantly curb your cravings for traditional macaroni and cheese.
