Nutritional values

There is no lack of satiating fiber in this recipe: one portion of the pasta dish provides about a third of the recommended daily amount. It's also packed with protein, thanks to the beans, peas, cheese, and soy cream.

Use whole wheat pasta instead of regular pasta to add even more fiber to this recipe.
