4 ounces of spaghetti style pasta
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 head of broccoli, diced into small florets
½ cup almond butter dressing
Kevala Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil
paprika and black pepper to serve
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, place a steamer on top of the boiling water and steam the chopped carrots and broccoli until tender (if you don't have a steamer just dump the veggies directly into the boiling water and cover with a lid).
Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Remove from heat and drain.
Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large saucepan and add the pasta. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the steamed carrots and broccoli and cook for 1 minute more. Finish with the almond dressing and mix to combine.
Serve sprinkled with paprika and black pepper!
