Today, I’m pulling out my inner Italian cooking goddess to bring to you the linguine with pumpkin, rocket, and roasted walnuts.
Okay, so let’s be honest. If I tell you this, you must keep it just between us, okay? Good. Now, as much as I wish I was a goddess, or had the skills of one, I’m not. I know – world shattering news. But that doesn’t mean I can’t try, right?
That’s exactly what I did this week, I tried. I put on my magic hat, the one that says Italian goddess, and laid out a bunch of ingredients that I thought would go well with pasta. The rest just happened. Because of this, I came up with amazing recipe that I’m super excited to share with you all.
Most people I know love pasta, vegan and non-vegan’s alike. And while I was creating this recipe with vegans in mind, I realised soon after that this dish could easily satisfy anyone. Perfect if you are having family and friends over, or if you have fussy eaters in your house (this recipe is great for fussy kids). So let’s jump right in and take a closer look.
To make your very own mouthwatering linguine, the kind that will have everyone coming back for seconds, you will need 11 ingredients and 30 minutes.
Starting off our recipe is pumpkin and olive oil. Combined, these ingredients offer us dietary fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, magnesium, folate, iron, and ‘healthy fats.’ We then add the pasta, garlic, walnuts, and rocket which provides us with a great source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamin K, calcium, and potassium. How can you say no to all of that?
Linguine with pumpkin, rocket, and roasted walnuts is the perfect dish for lunch or dinner because it’s:
I am a firm believer of happy memories shared at the dinner table with family and friends are some of the best moments in life, so gather everyone up and have them ready to eat soon after you finish cooking this meal. Serving it hot of the stove will produce the best taste and quality. In case you do need to store any left overs, simply pop it in the fridge for up to 48 hours in an airtight container.
You may decide to prepare this meal for lunch at work. And why not? Not only will you have the best tasting lunch out of everyone, you also get to show of your amazing cooking skills. Just remember to put it a container you want to take with you, so in the morning you can grab and go.
There you have it. Be sure to follow the recipe below and happy cooking!
