Basil Pesto Pasta

Dive into a symphony of flavours with this Basil Pesto Pasta, made with a twist. Here’s what makes ours unique:

  • We’ve opted for cashew nuts and nutritional yeast. Instead of using the traditional pine nuts and parmesan cheese, we’ve made these substitutions. Cashews are a heart-friendly nut and also provide ample nutrients like magnesium, zinc, and iron. Nutritional yeast is rich in B vitamins, especially B12, which can give you a much-needed boost of energy.
  • It’s not a pesto without basil. Basil is loaded with antioxidants which help protect cells from oxidative stress and inflammation. It also boosts anti-inflammatory properties to boost overall health.
  • We’ve added more superfoods, thanks to Progressive’s VegeGreens. It helps support your immune and digestive systems, while also supporting your body’s anti-inflammatory response. It also has an enzyme blend to help your body better digest foods.

 This easy and delicious pasta is the perfect side dish or even main! Try it today!
