Vegetarian - Pesto Vegetable Wholewheat Penne Pasta - 250g

Vegetarian

R 73.56

*Whole-wheat penne pasta, colourful roasted butternut and courgettes with fresh basil pesto (with delicious Kefalotiri cheese) and extra virgin olive oil. This is one of our most popular vegetarian meals, so fresh and delicious. It is almost like you have an Italian mamma living in your kitchen. #eatClean*whole-wheat pasta: This is one of the few meals where we allowed wheat, we felt that whole-wheat pasta was easier on the stomach than most alternatives. Whole-wheat pasta is way higher in fibre than white pasta and high-fibre make all the difference (whole wheat pasta is 3 or more times higher in fibre).FitChef EatClean Range only uses nature’s ingredients. With our EatClean Ethos, you won’t find man-made chemical preservatives, colourants, additives, or other highly refined ingredients in our strictest EatClean Range. Most importantly, we don’t add sugars, whether artificial or concentrated. We use nature’s whole-food ingredients so that our meals are, generally, low-carb and high in fibre. Our meat is sourced from grass-fed/free-range farms and is free of routine antibiotics and growth hormones.
