Pasta dough with basil is a great idea, because basil is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids - secondary plant compounds that combat harmful free radicals and help keep body cells healthy. These so-called antioxidants also provide effective protection against inflammation. Spelt flour is also better tolerated than conventional wheat flour. It also scores points for its high protein content, which is needed as a building material for our cells.

Especially for children, these noodles are a real fun, depending on the choice of cookie cutters. The little ones love broccoli or a fruity tomato sauce with the pasta. Adults can enjoy the pasta with this creamy parsley pesto.
