With calories in mind, the fact is that preparing a delicious dish of pasta is not going to be an easy thing anyway. This happens to be so due to the fact that you will basically have so much to mind like the very pasta you will be making, the paste you will have for it and the toppings included into it. This post however is a leaf of an idea into getting to prepare some of the most delicious pastas you may have been longing for all easy and simple after all.
The first recipe we will take a look at is the Tropical Pesto recipe and this has a known calorie count of about 465 calories. These are the constituents of the recipe which you will need to have it done-2 cups of spaghetti, 6 cloves of garlic, 2 cups of loosely packed baby spinach leaves, 1 cup of firmly packed basil leaves, half a cup of Pecorino-Romano cheese you have sliced into cubes, 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of lemon zest and 1/4 teaspoon salt. In your food processor, have your Romano cheese grated until it is to a coarse texture, one process that will probably last about thirty seconds or so. While still in the processor, add to it garlic and process one more time until it is finely mixed with the cheese. On these add the spinach leaves, basil leaves, walnuts, lemon juice, lemon zest and seasoning salt and then have these processed again until they form a thick paste. This is then to be followed by carefully adding to the ingredients olive oil and then have them processed until the oil is integrated into the mixture. The already cooked pasta will then be placed in a serving bowl and then topped with the sauce and after then you will have it tossed to coat.
The other low carb recipes we will discuss herein is the Tomato and Beans Penne whose calorie count is 460 calories. The following are the ingredients necessary for the recipe-one cup of penne pasta, cooked al-dente, 3 1/2 cups Italian-kind sliced tomatoes, 2 1/4 cups of cannellini beans, 1 1/4 cup of fresh spinach leaves and 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese. You need to have a large non sticky pan on which you will have the ingredients, the tomatoes and the cannellini beans mixed onto and then boiled over some low or medium heat source. Reduce the heat and then have it the ingredients simmered for a period of about 10 or 12 minutes.
