Skinny Pasta

Julia Azzarello
Authors:
Julia Azzarello

Although pasta is often on the 'avoid' list of a diet, this needn't be the case as it's the accompanying sauces and topping that pile on the calories, and the pounds. The recipes in Skinny Pasta prove otherwise - all are small on calories, but big on nourishing nutrients, full of flavour and decent portions.Featuring a mix of timeless classics and contemporary interpretations, the recipes focus on fresh, healthy and nutritious ingredients, plus many are vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free. From fresh and flavourful Vermicelli with Cherry Tomatoes, Rocket & Feta, and Mafaldine with Romanesco Sauce, to tasty salads such as Greek Rotini and soups including Butter Bean, Chorizo & Spinach with Pappardelle, as well as many quick and easy mains like Orecchiette with Cime Di Rapa & Chilli as well as the ever popular Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n' Cheese, there's a pasta dish for any occasion. And if you have a little more time on your hands then make your own basic pasta dough, gluten-free gnocchi, fresh pesto or marinara sauce, although all the recipes can be made with shop-bought pasta too. With nutritional info for every recipe, each dish is 500 or less calories per portion.
