Asian Shrimp Veggie Pasta is nutritious, healthy and so easy to make. Great super food vegetables such as cabbage and kale combined with shrimp and pasta.
I’m making a commitment this year to start eating more vegetables! One sure fire way to get the kids (and adults) eating veggies is stir frying them into pasta dishes. Add a lean protein and you have a healthy meal everyone will love! I topped this recipe with cashews and sesame sticks, but peanuts, sunflower seeds would also taste terrific.
