      Let’s look at the main ingredients: 

      • Cherry tomatoes 
      • Olive oil 
      • Garlic
      • Coconut milk
      • Parmassan 
      • Noodles

      Olive oil, garlic, cherry tomatoes, and coconut milk are all-natural, nutritious foods that can be used to add nutrients and flavor to a wide variety of recipes. 

      Sugar is what makes food unhealthy.

      Common pasta is made from white flour (refined grains) which means pasta is nearly equivalent to sugar.

      Add 240g of sugar (40g/serving) to this tomato and garlic pasta, and you’re looking at heartburn with an energy crash. (And you’ll be scouring the pantry for your next sugar snack within the hour.) 

      Substitute common pasta with our low-carb alternative, and this recipe becomes nourishment. The ingredients provide vitamins, minerals, protein, and quality, whole-food energy.

      One Pot Tomato and Garlic Pasta Tips

      1. Meal prep 

      This recipe keeps well and reheats like a dream. So, go ahead and make a double batch to enjoy throughout the week! Once cooked and cooled, leftovers can be transferred to glass Tupperware and stored in the fridge for up to five to seven days. Then, just warm them in the microwave or over medium heat on the stove, and enjoy! 

      2. Include protein 

      We kept this pasta vegetarian-friendly, but you could easily bulk it up with the addition of cooked ground meat such as lean beef, turkey, or chicken. 

      3. Add extra veggies

      Whether you have picky eaters or are just trying to incorporate more vegetables into your life, this tomato and garlic pasta is a great way to sneak in extra servings. Add mushrooms, zucchini, or spinach to the mix, and you won’t even notice that they’re there! 

      4. Incorporate a side 

      Round out your meal, making it extra filling and fit for a crowd with healthy side dishes like a lemon Parmesan salad, spiraled cucumber salad, or low-carb dinner rolls

      5. Have leftover noodles? 

      Don’t toss them out! Save them to make another round of this tomato and garlic pasta. Or, switch things up with a batch of hidden veggie pasta or chili garlic oil noodles so you never get bored.
