Is Vegetable Pasta Healthy?

While healthy means something different for everyone and can vary from person to person, Vegetable Pasta is the most healthful creamy recipe I’ve ever shared. 

This recipe is luxuriously creamy and feels totally indulgent, but we’re using VEGETABLES to make the cream base, not the usual ingredients.
