Red Bell Pepper Almond Pesto

Another red bell pepper pesto. Yeah, at this point I should have a pesto category. It's good to have options, right?


We did spinach fettuccine to reduce carbs slightly and get a little more veggies in us. Regular fettuccine has about 15% your daily value of carbs. This spinach fettuccine has 12%, just as much fiber, plus vitamin A and calcium.


As suggested by Vegan Heaven, we served with sauteed mushrooms. We also threw in some vegan Italian sausage and zucchini.
