Tomato Garlic Sauce Bucatini

Are you looking to get more veggies into your diet?

A loaded veggie pasta bowl is a tasty and delicious way to get a few servings in. I have these several times a week and even though pasta is demonized as a diet wrecker, eaten in proper proportions and combined with healthy add ins, it’s a cheap, tasty, quick and nutritious meal.

  • Put on your pasta water to boil. Prep other food while waiting and broccolini can be quickly blanched in the boiling water and set aside. Only put in the water until bright green then pull out.
  • Saute 4 cloves chopped garlic in 1T olive oil until starting to turn golden then add two sliced zuchinnis to pan and salt lightly. When zuchini has some color add a pinch of crushed red pepper and cook for one minute. Add 1 can drained chick peas and cook 2 mins. Then add 1 cup unsweetened plant milk and 2Tsp tomato paste and bring to a quick boil. Taste for salt and add a pinch.
  • Last toss your cooked and drained pasta in the sauce with 1 cup baby spinach leaves. Garnish with hemp seeds and black pepper.


This is a high carb meal but also high in fiber and protein so frankly I just don’t worry about it. This kind of lunch sustains me literally for about 10 hours! I only need snacks for the rest of the afternoon and evening and I do ALOT of running around. The power of plants is real!
