This recipe can’t get any easier. Three ingredients: sauce, pasta and protein/veggies of choice. Yes, that’s it! You can get more creative with it to add in bits of this and that you may have leftover in the fridge, but you can’t go wrong with the original three ingredients.
The real standout for this one is Nellino’s Sauce. Nellino’s Sauce comes in four flavors: Marinara, Tomato & Basil, Hot & Spicy Arrabbiata and Lavendar and Thyme Pomodoro. Each has their own distinct, yet subtle flavor profile without being overwhelming. Nellino’s is also the only brand I’ve had where I didn’t need to doctor it up with a dash of this or a splash of that to be enjoyable. If you haven’t tried Nellino’s yet, I suggest giving them a try for this recipe to let it be the real star. I really like their Lavendar and Thyme Pomodoro because of the subtle flavor combo that also happens to be FODMAP-friendly.
