Vegetarian - Pesto Vegetable Wholewheat Penne Pasta

R 56.80



*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 makes all the difference (whole wheat pasta is 3 or more times higher in fibre).

 Cashews (Tree Nuts), Cheese (Cow's Milk) , Garlic, Wheat (Gluten)

Made in a kitchen with eggs, nuts, seeds, dairy & soya
