Healthy Veggie Pasta with Dairy Free Alfredo Sauce
What You Will Need (Full Printable Recipe Available Below)
Along with eating clean and trying to keep my family eating healthy I also see a nutritionist. To make a long story short he runs a full blood panel and can see where my body is lacking certain things or has an abundance etc. Then we take this info and use food as a sort of medicine to address any issues. For example, my thyroid is a mess, my glutamine is extremely low, and my hormones are a mess. To keep it simple, my current diet now includes more cashews and less almonds. More pork, and less chicken. I find myself seeking out recipes and then making a lot of changes to them to keep them healthy for myself and my family. As a result I now plan to add more alternative clean eating recipes to my blog.

Gluten Free Veggie Pasta with Dairy Free Alfredo Sauce
- Let’s gather our gluten free veggie pasta and other simple ingredients. This veggie pasta is from Cybele’s Free to Eat. Thats it, nothing else. You can get Cybele’s pasta online here: Free to Eat. Or if you are a member of Thrive market you can get both the pasta and the alfredo sauce there. I am a member of Thrive Market and love it. (I have no affiliation with Thrive or these brands, I am just sharing what I eat and love). Thrive has a huge variety of healthy food options that can be easily delivered to your home.
- Cut, chop and trim your vegetables that you are adding to your veggie pasta. This is a great way to sneak a whole bunch of veggies into your kids if they are otherwise reluctant.
- Take your veggie pasta and cook it according to the directions on the box. This veggie pasta is made from parsnips, cauliflower and lentils. This brand ( Cybele’s pasta ) does have a few other vegetable combinations to choose from for their pastas. Next, Im going to make the red lentil, pumpkin and butternut squash rotini. 🙂
- While your pasta is cooking, spray a little avocado oil into a nonstick pan and sauté your vegetables. This shouldn’t take but a few minutes. Cook until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms and asparagus soften.
- Heat your dairy free Alfredo sauce. You can heat on the stove top or take the easy way. I confess, I normally just heat a bit up in the microwave. Fair warning, it will come out of the jar and seem a bit gelatinous and weird. But trust me, it is surprisingly delicious.
- When the pasta is cooked to your desired tenderness, drain the pasta.
- Combine your veggie pasta, sautéed vegetables and dairy free alfredo sauce and enjoy.
