Creamy Pesto Pasta

Twirl your fork right into this! Made with F-Factor Unflavored 20/20 FIBER/PROTEIN powder and low sodium chicken broth instead of oil and pine nuts, this Step 2 recipe is much lighter than traditional pesto pasta. 

INGREDIENTS (serves 5):

  • 1/2 cup (2 scoops) Unflavored 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powder 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

    1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook fettuccini according to package directions, until al dente. Remove from heat, drain water and set aside.
    2. While water boils and fettuccini cooks, prepare pesto sauce by adding the basil, garlic, Parmesan cheese, unflavored 20/20, and salt to a food processor or blender and pureeing. Once pureed, scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula and add the olive oil and chicken broth. Continue to process until smooth.
    3. Add pesto sauce to fettuccini and mix until fettuccini is well-coated.
    4. Plate and garnish as desired.

    Serves 5, ~1 cup per serving. This is a Step 2 Approved Recipe.
