Gemelli Pasta with French Beans and Cauliflower

On with 0 Comment
Gemelli Pasta with French Beans and CauliflowerI rarely add multiple veggies in a pasta preparation. Today's delicious pasta is packed with herbs as well as nutritious vegetables. It's a complete meal and is ideal for breakfast. I've used Gemelli pasta which can be easily replaced with a local pasta variant. French bean is an essential ingredient of this preparation and must be included to get the authentic taste. Cauliflower can be easily replaced by broccoli or you can take equal quantities of both to give a more colorful look to the recipe. Seasoned whipped cream can also be sprinkled on this pasta just before serving. Leftovers can be used for stuffing patties, tacos, and burgers. Let's make this wholesome, scrumptious and light pasta preparation.
