St. Patrick’s Day is upon us and like the good Irish I am (not really, but my heart is half Irish :P) I would like we all celebrate this special festivity with a Super Green Pasta Bowl!!
It is healthy, quick and super delicious. I found this spinach pasta type at a supermarket a couple of weeks ago, it has been my first experience with it and I’ve to say it’s quiet good!! I needed to prepare something quick, some garnish that could get ready while the pasta was boiling and I came up with this stunning Green Pasta Bowl! It’s tangy thanks to the lemon oil and sweet for the basil oil I’ve used on it.
And I have to say that probably the secret for its wonderful flavour is the essential oils I’ve used. It has been one of my first experiments cooking with essential oils, as a chef I’ve always used fresh herbs and spices, but when a friend told me about these powerful oils I couldn’t resist! And the truth is that they are really extraordinary!!! Just a drop of the essential oil and all the meal will be heavily and nicely impregnated and covered with its aroma and flavor. They are super powerful so just a drop for a big saucepan of pasta is more than enough.
If you are adventurous and would like to try using them as well, just keep in mind that not all essential oils are created equally. The Young Living is the only brand that I’ve tried, they are pure, 100% essential oil. The process is very meticulous, they oversees every step, from choosing the seeds, to the production and of course the delivery to the final client as well. So I would just recommend you using this brand for your safety.
To recreate this satisfying Green Pasta Bowl you just need chopped fresh spinach, defrosted green peas, a delicious pasta sauce made with parmesan and a drop each of lemon and basil essential oil. I’ve told you it was quick and easy, haven’t I?
Let’s make our day and life a bit greener in honour to the Irish 💚 and for our health too 😋
Happy St. Paddy’s Week!!
