For the past several years, as a public speaker, I’ve been presenting “Healthy Pasta Alternatives” to libraries in New Jersey. During the pandemic I even did one via ZOOM. But it was great to get back in the swing of things and see people–and actually serve pasta instead of showing people pasta over the camera!
Last Wednesday I presented this program at the Roseland Free Public Library to a full house!
When making a dish, to be sampled near the end of the program, I opt for simple in order to please everyone. I take into consideration that patrons may have nut allergies, so it’s a basic pasta primavera, with fresh organic vegetables and a basic homemade Italian dressing.
There are many different types of pasta you can enjoy that are low or no sodium, wheat-free, and low in carbs–or lower in carbs than the traditional semolina. For the program, I purchased several types of pastas to include in a gift basket giveaway.
