Five Plant-Powered Hacks for Classic Italian Pasta Dishes

September 3, 2021

Cauliflower pasta. Two words that don’t normally go together but should now make your mouth water, thanks to our NEW Frozen Cauliflower Pastas! When it comes to Italian food, you may think all the dishes are packed with calories, carbs and — let’s face it — ingredients that may taste delicious, but just aren’t doing you any nutritional favors. With CAULIPOWER’s Frozen Cauliflower Pasta, however, you can create the same delicious Italian dishes that actually taste as good as they are for you!

When you’re craving pasta (aka, always if you’re like us) but looking for a more nutritious, plant-based alternative, CAULIPOWER’s Cauliflower Linguine or Pappardelle will really hit the spot. The two new pastas cook, look and truly taste like fresh pasta, and they’re both made with real cauliflower as the #1 ingredient. They’re a good source of fiber AND gluten free — and at just 230 calories per serving, they’re the lowest-calorie pasta on the market!

Ready to rethink pasta night? We’ve rounded up five plant-powered, nutritious and mouth-watering recipes — and let us just say, the pastabilities are endless!


Noodling over what to make for dinner tonight? Our Linguine Cauliflower Pasta takes center stage in this pasta dish that’s perfect for those warm summer (or even Fall) nights. A combination of garlic, tomatoes, peas, corn and lemon zest combine with the pasta in this recipe that’s ready in only 10 minutes. We’re not kidding about it being easy PEASy!

Our friends at Ninja®, Otamot, and Sabatino Tartufi helped us come up with this recipe for our Linguine Cauliflower Pasta that’s quite pastably going down in history as one of the best! All you need is a saucepan and fry pan (we used the Ninja™ Foodi™ NeverStick™ 2 1/2-Quart Saucepan and Ninja™ Foodi™ NeverStick™ 10 1/4-Inch Fry Pan), tomato sauce (we love Otamot Organic Essential Tomato Sauce!), truffle oil (like Sabatino Tartufi White Truffle Infused Oil) and a few other delicious ingredients to make this truffle-tastic pasta that’s ready in only 10 minutes! We dare you not to come back for seconds (or thirds, or fourths, or … okay, you get the idea).


Chicken Romano? More like Chicken Roma-WHOA! A combo of our BAKED (never fried) Chicken Tenders and Linguine Cauliflower Pasta, along with lemon juice, garlic, lemon zest, butter and heavy whipping cream, definitely pasta the test of tasty, nutritious Italian dishes that are ready in minutes!
