Gluten Free Pasta With Vegan Pesto
Gluten free corn pasta smothered in a vegan parsley and walnut pesto sauce. This pesto is full of healthy fats in the form of walnuts and extra virgin olive oil. A bit of fresh lemon juice brightens and cuts through the richness of this sauce.
This is such a delicious way to consume raw garlic and parsley, both of which have many health benefits. And the warmth from the pasta takes the edge off the garlic by cooking it ever so slightly, while still preserving most of the nutritional benefits of the raw garlic.
