Nutritional values

This is a lighter take on a classic, decadent pasta recipe. This dish is rich in protein and fiber, provides plenty of immune-effective zinc, and just one portion covers half your daily requirement of calcium.

Add some corn to the salad, which is good for the eyes, for additional flavor.
