Tricolor spiral pasta ala crème

An easy and fast pasta recipe, that you can serve proudly!

Pasta is an affordable and loved food throughout the world. It’s easy and fast to cook and there are hundreds of recipes. It provides our body with essential nutrients. It gives us beneficial carbohydrates and it’s a good source of fiber. It also provides us with selenium and manganese, both very important for our health. Selenium is a mineral with antioxidant properties and it protects our cells. Manganese is a mineral that helps us metabolize carbohydrates and regulates our blood sugar. It also contains vitamin B9. If you prefer whole-wheat pasta, you can add carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin in the nutrients you are receiving. Both of them support a healthy vision. It provides us with energy!

One of my favorite dishes is tricolor spiral pasta ala crème. You can make it in no time and you can serve it at any occasion. You can also use any kind of pasta you like, white or whole-wheat, spaghetti, tagliatelle, penne, etc.

    1. It’s a delicious and easy recipe, you should definitely try it at some point. But not now! I wouldn’t want you to ruin your diet because of me. 🙂

  2. I love pasta and I like it that you don’t have to follow any recipe, you can make it with whatever you have in the fridge, it will still be delicious. Your recipe sounds lovely! I am a fan of a lot of flavour and I think I would replace the cream with pesto or sundried tomatoes pesto.

    1. I also love pasta because you can add anything you want in it. I cook it differently every time, depending on what I have in the fridge or on what I feel like eating. No matter what, pasta tastes delicious! Pesto and sundried tomatoes sound like a great idea! I will try it next time! 🙂

    1. Yes, colored pasta makes a dish more interesting for children. It’s also delicious, so I think they will love it.

  3. You made it sound so easy! I haven’t been eating pasta for several years now as I’m a glutenfree, but luckily found glutenfree pasta made of soyabeans, not as tasty but will do.

    1. I’ve never tried glutenfree pasta, but I think it will be delicious too. Just try it and let me know! Thank you! 🙂
