Kale Spaghetti Genovese #italianpasta #pesto #spaghetti #healthy #jcookingodyssey


If you like Italian food, pasta, Soya beans,  Kale, basil, and olive oil pesto, or some combination of the former , I really recommend giving this a try.



Everything back to routine now, kids back to University and college, every morning alarms not forgetting to wake me up 7 am to pack lunch for sunny boy.

So,nowadays my lunch is more of a healthier and balanced meal and try for something which can be prepared in less time. It being winter, I am in need of hot and comfort food, and when you think about quick, easy and hot bowl in your hand , thinks about pasta !



Traditional Spaghetti Genovese is Italian dish, which is prepared with pasta, potato and Pesto, and has too much carb for me to handle ,So I prepared Kale spaghetti genovese, removed potato totally and tossed in a vegan kale Pesto and added some protein packed  Soya beans to complete balanced meal. This vegan pasta dish is perfect solution when you want something quick and tasty-and everything cooked in one pan !

I totally skipped any kind of cheese, and used Nutritional yeast for cheese flavour which is very healthy without any fat. So, day before yesterday I had flavoursome, earthy and well balanced vegan lunch and I was satiated.







You will need :-

  • 1/4 cup vegan kale pesto - recipe here
  • 75 g spaghetti 
  • 50 g soya beans (  I used Frozen ) or trimmed  green beans
  • 2 tbsp. Nutritional yeast
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for drizzling 
Method :-
Cook the spaghetti in a large pan of boiling water according to the pack instructions.
Add the frozen soya beans to the pan for the final of 2 minutes of cooking time.
Drain the spaghetti and beans, return to the pan and toss through with a pesto.
Add nutritional yeast and mix well.
Serve in a bowl topped with freshly ground pepper and drizzle some good quality extra virgin olive oil.
Enjoy !
