Since Halloween is right around the corner, chances are ghoulish parties and potlucks are quickly filling up your iCal. When it comes to whipping up something scary-good, look no further than this soybean-based Black Pasta recipe. Not only do we like to think the black noodles resemble a witch’s mane, but the deep red tomato sauce brings forth the spooky holiday’s go-to color.
The tomato pasta sauce is a staple in our Italian household and a recipe that my mom learned how to make from my Nana many years ago. It is full of bold Italian flavors thanks to the combination of garlic, basil, Italian seasoning and crushed tomatoes. It is balanced with acidity and spice and topped with fresh parsley and Parmesan cheese.
I also added Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides to the tomato sauce. It’s a standout ingredient because it’s unflavored, odorless and easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids. Collagen helps to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints**.
If you have a Halloween event coming up or want to get into the spirit and make something creative for the family, this Black Pasta and tomato sauce is definitely a must. To consume more vegetables, I recommend adding in mushrooms, peppers, spinach and any vegetable of your choice!
