Ok, so I’m back on my healthy eating and exercise plan. Working out, eating plenty of fresh veggies. Pasta is my favorite comfort food, second only to mashed potatoes…yum! But that’s another post for another day.
This primavera has a rich, flavorful sauce made from raw cashews. It’s a great sauce for macaroni and (not) cheese, pizza, nachos, steamed broccoli and it’s crazy good on mashed potatoes. There I go again.
Every time I return to my exercise plan after a period of inconsistent workouts, it’s like starting all over again. Thirty minutes with Jillian, though, and it all comes back to me. Finishing a tough workout is gratifying. Just to say, “I did it!” I’m on day three and feeling stronger already.
8 oz dried whole-grain pasta (cooked al dente and drained)
2 cups assorted raw vegetables, julienned or thinly sliced
1 onion, chopped
1 cup cashews
