Pasta with Peas, Fennel, Mint and Parsley

Pasta with peas, fennel, mint and parsley

Pasta is one of those ingredients that is ultimately an easy quick fix dinner. It definitely should be eaten in moderation and if you’re not making fresh pasta then choose the wholemeal at your local shop. For healthier pasta have it with nutrient-packed ingredients and minimum creamy sauce!!

This recipe is so flavoursome and delivers an amazing mix of flavours! Fennel has many essential oils that ease bloating by relaxing the gut and also contains anethole which has fantastic anti-inflammatory properties.
