Pretty in Pink! Low Carb Pasta Night with Primal Kitchen’s Pink Sauce

When I asked my husband Ryan and his mom about what did they miss about the non-keto diet, both of them gave me the same answer –  Pizza and Pasta. Ryan’s mom is Italian, she grew up with all these delicious family Italian meals. I totally understand the Keto diet is not easy if you have to give up your favorite foods in your life. BUT! The good thing is that pizza and pasta have the keto-friendly options now. Thanks to Primal Kitchen’s pink pasta sauce, Ryan’s pasta dream just came true last night.

Both Ryan and I work until 6pm in almost weekdays, I don’t have that much time and energy to take care of a complicated dinner. But we had last night – I would give the name of our pasta – The Pink Sausage Black Bean Pasta… It’s not a pretty name, but anyways, it is quick, delicious, and important to Ryan, it is keto-friendly.

I used Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, Polish Sausages and Primal Kitchen’s No-Dairy Pink Primavera Sauce with a sprinkle of arugula leaves and sriracha sauce on the top. Ryan was super happy with that. Of course I felt happy too.

If you want to follow the new trend of Heart of Palm Pasta, you may be interested in this pretty pink pasta recipe. Similar to shirataki noodles, pasta made from hearts of palm are a lower carb alternative to pasta made with flour (including nut-based flours). This recipe used Palmini low-carb linguine, which contains 4 grams of carbs per serving, in our keto vegan spaghetti. These gluten-free noodles provide the texture, chew, mouthfeel, and bland flavor that allow the sauce and toppings to shine.

The recipe paired the swirly hearts of palm noodles with Primal Kitchen vegan Pink Primavera Sauce, which is made with avocado oil; beets, tomatoes, apples to get a gorgeous fuchsia hue; and cashew butter for creaminess with no dairy. This four-ingredient keto vegan spaghetti is the perfect pantry dish to throw together in less than 10 minutes.
