Heart Healthy Tomato Basil Pasta

Honestly, I'd probably eat this right out of the pot before it's even cooked! Pasta gets a bad rep when it comes to heart health. My dad's dietician says that he can eat many foods that were thought to be taboo every now and again. And although I'll defer to a licensed dietician, I'm still a bit skeptical when it comes to certain foods. However, with all of these fresh vegetables and herbs, the pasta in this recipe takes a back seat. If you're still a bit cautious, try one of the many pasta products available like Barilla Whole Grain and Barilla Plus products that contain protein, fiber, and Omega-3s. In fact, they have yummy pastas for almost every dietary need. I just picked one up made with pureed asparagus and spinach for tonight's supper.

This delicious recipe comes from Donna over at Apron Strings and includes fresh oregano, basil, and red pepper. Not to mention a good dose of garlic!
