I often make this pasta dish for the kids from work. In the beginning they said they didn’t like it, because it was too green. But I called it Hulk pasta, told them not te eat it, because I didn’t want them turn into Hulk and all of a sudden they loved it. One day, when they watched me making it, they did ask me: ‘Lisa, why are you putting a smoothie in the pasta?’. Haha! A few times I posted it on my Instagram Story and many asked for the recipe. I procrastinated it for a while, but I thought Earth Day is a good reason to post such a green and tasty recipe. Whenever I make it for the kids I always make a bit more, because I also like to eat this myself. It’s so creamy and delicious. What makes it a great family recipe!
