Nutritional values

The vegetarian pasta meal is rich in dietary fibres that stabilise blood sugar and also keep our cholesterol level in check, important trace elements, vitamin E and the bioactive carotenoid lycopene, which protect our cells from oxidative destruction through their antioxidant effect.

This dish would go well with a little arugula. If you add 100 grams, you will have a fresh note and the vitamin C in the rocket supports the radical scavengers vitamin E and lycopene and strengthens your immune system.
