Vegan Fettuccine Pesto Recipe with Squash, Pecans, and Pomegranate Seeds

Did you guys know that March is National Noodle Month? I had no idea, so I’d better catch up and get started with a tasty noodle dish! I love pasta, but it’s so heavy and I am really trying to stay away from extra carbs and gluten. Explore Cuisine products are loaded with protein, iron, and fiber, these pastas are the perfect alternative to other glutinous pastas. I really want to try out their black bean spaghetti, it looks good!

This fettuccine dish is fabulous, the noodles are made with organic mung beans and edamame, truly 100% vegan and gluten free. Making pasta is not easy, and when I want noodles without the carb load, I am thankful that I can make a quick meal with a lentil or rice pasta, pre-made! Give this recipe a try, it’s a delicious vegan fettuccine pesto recipe full of protein and veggies, tasty and healthy!
