A healthy low carb pasta recipe that can accompany almost any menu! Toasted nuts, salty feta, and fresh mint all shine!
One 8 ounce box of Good Day Pasta
1/3 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds, chopped
¼ cup toasted sesame seeds (I buy these roasted already in the Asian section)
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
½ cup fresh mint, chopped
¼ cup olive oil + 2 Tablespoons
4 T. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spread out walnuts and almonds. Toast for approximately 5-6 minutes, tossing every 2 minutes, until nuts are slightly brown. Keep you eye on oven and do not leave kitchen. Nuts are easy to overcook! Remove from oven and cool. After cooling, chop nuts.
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse briefly.
In the meantime, chop and prep all other ingredients.
For dressing, mix oil and lemon juice with ½ t. salt and ¼ pepper.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, taste and adjust seasonings. Serve!
