Forget gold! Here is your mealtime pot of “green” at the end of the day this spring. Turn an ordinary pasta night into “lucky” pesto pasta night. This fun shamrock shaped pasta is your ticket away from March dinnertime madness. You can make a nice big batch of this stuff and serve it for a few nights – adding in different veggies, healthy beans – even some melty vegan mozzarella cheese over top.
I found this fun pasta at Cost Plus World market. And you can even buy it online from Amazon. The green shamrocks are colored with spinach and have a mild flavor. Super yummy paired with pesto.
If you can’t find this shamrock pasta – you can always use another shape of “green” colored pasta. I even added some vegan Daiya cheese for an extra yummy accent.
The perfect dessert to this meal? A shamrock shake (vegan) of course!
