For those days when you need something a little lighter and lower in carbs, but still want to enjoy a nice meal, Zero&Light pasta line is what you need!

Their products are low-carb, low-fat, high in protein and fibres and gluten-free.

In this recipe I have used their Fit Line (high in protein) and a creamy dressing made of fresh ricotta, natural pistachio nuts and fresh asparagus.

Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 35 g Zero&Light Fit Pasta
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 150 g fresh asparagus
  • salt and pepper
  • 50 g fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp all-natural pistachio nuts
  • 1 tsp grated parmesan cheese

Boil pasta following package instructions. Meanwhile bleach the asparagus for 3 min in boiling water, then cut off the tips (set those aside) and blend the rest with the ricotta, pistachio nuts, extra virgin olive oil, salt pepper and 1 tbsp of water (taken from the pot where you are cooking the pasta).

When pasta is ready, drain it and dress it with the pesto. Add the tips of asparagus, a grate of Parmesan cheese and some fresh parsley leaves.

Serve it up immediately.
