Vegetarian Pasta Dishes With Protein
We all pretty well know that regular pasta doesn’t contain very much popular proteins or vitamins.
But we can make it very healthier and rich in protein by filling it with loads of vegetables.
Apart from vegetables, there are tons of other nourishing ingredients like nuts, cereals, grains, and more you can add to enhance the taste and nutritional level of pasta dishes.
And, of course, you can come up with new recipes, too.

Ingredients You Can Include
Including more ingredients in this recipe will never disappoint you. You can add things depending on your wishes.

These are all my suggestions. If you want some other ingredients, you can include that, but before you mix them, make sure they taste good.
