Mediterranean Chicken Pasta

Vince’s Market Coterie Pasta Sauces

When I choose a pasta sauce, I read the label to check for simple ingredients, consisting of natural whole foods.   I want to make sure that it is free of additives, preservatives and added sugar.  Coterie pasta sauces are just that: simple and healthy.

The healthiest way to make pasta is to add lots of colourful vegetables and herbs for an assortment of nutrients. It is also important to choose a healthier noodle.  Options like whole wheat, spelt or Kamut pasta have more fiber and the goodness of whole grains.  This will make the meal more satisfying, helping you to eat a healthier portion.  Don’t forget to add a salad on the side, to increase your intake of veggies and to balance off the carbs in the pasta.

Here is a quick and easy pasta recipe that you can have ready in less than an hour.
