During weekdays, we often crave a light, nutritious, and quick meal for lunch. Pasta dishes are ideal for this because they are al dente in just a few minutes. Since pasta can be enjoyed hot with sauces or cold as a salad, there are numerous serving options. A homemade pesto, for example, goes perfectly with Alver’s protein-rich pasta.
1⁄2 cup sundried tomatoes, drained and chopped
3 cups fresh basil leaves (loosely wrapped)
3-4 fresh garlic cloves
1/2 tsp golden chlorella
1⁄2 cup pine nuts or walnuts
1⁄2 cup olive oil
1⁄2 tsp salt
In a food processor, blend the tomatoes, basil leaves, and garlic. Add golden chlorella, nuts and 1/4 cup olive oil; mix well.
Then add the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper; mix well again. Store in the fridge or separate evenly into ice cube trays and freeze. Use the pesto with pasta dishes, such as Alver Protein Pasta (Penne or Fussili).
