Mung Bean Fettuccine w/Pesto Alfredo

Mmmm….Alfredo. It is so good and comforting. It is also heavy and carbo laden. Working for a healthy supermarket, I’ve been able to discover some really unique and awesome alternatives to traditional comfort foods. Recently, I stumbled upon this Organic Mung Bean Fettuccine that has almost 22 grams of protein per serving and tastes pretty dag on close to the real thing. Now that is worth $3.49 a pack!

Mung Bean Fettuccine w/Pesto Alfredo Mung Bean1
Sunflower Seed Pesto
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 cups almond milk (or any milk)
1 tbsp organic butter
Garlic (to taste)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Cayenne Pepper (optional)

Boil 8 cups of water, add fettuccine and simmer. Cook for 7-8 minutes. Rinse under cold water.

In a separate saucepan, melt the butter then remove from heat. Add flour slowly and stir until smooth. Slowly add milk and continue to stir. Return the sauce pan to LOW heat and continue to mix until thick. Once it is thick, add the pesto, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Add fettuccine and toss until all is mixed well. Enjoy!
