I am back with another pasta recipe this week!! Did you see the Tuscan Chicken Pasta that I shared on Monday? If not, head over after you see this recipe. It is part of the Deamfields #HealthyPastaMonth series. Last year I made a Blackened Shrimp Pasta that you might not want to miss either.
This week theme is Minimalism – because less is more in terms of tasty ingredients. Recipes that just have a few quality ingredients, are simple, yet tasty and delicious. And this creamy Tuscan chicken pasta fits that perfectly!
Each week all month long Dreamfields has been having a different theme to celebrate Healthy Pasta Month. This week theme is Minimalism – because less is more in terms of tasty ingredients. Recipes that just have a few quality ingredients, are simple, yet tasty and delicious.
I love cooking with Dreamfields pasta, because it is an easy way to eat a little better, and still have the food that we love. Dreamfields has the taste and al dente texture of traditional pasta, yet each one cup cooked serving of pasta has 5 grams of fiber (20% of the daily recommended intake) and 7 grams of plant protein. So you no longer have to feel guilty about having that bowl of pasta for dinner.
For my 1st minimalist recipe I decided to take my classic steamed mussels and mix it with linguine. Knowing how to cook mussels is a good skill to have.
- Make sure your mussels are clean. You want to wash them, and remove the “beard” if it has one (hair that is sticking out of the shell.
- All of your mussels should be closed. If you tap on them and they remain open, discard and do not eat.
- Once you steam the mussels they should fully open. If they do not open, discard and do not eat.
Linguine with mussels is a great mussels recipe that you can make for date night, when you have guests over, or just for a quick weeknight meal. My guys love mussels, and they are actually relatively inexpensive to buy, so it is a dinner my family enjoys often.
To top off Healthy Pasta Month, Dreamfields has an awesome GIVEAWAY as well! They are giving away Wusthof 18-piece Gourmet Cutlery Set and a Dreamfields Family Pack. There are TWO winners, so be sure to head on over and enter!
