cabbage and mushroom pasta recipe from the top

This recipe came to my head the other day when I was craving pasta and realized I had a package of soba noodles (buckwheat pasta) in my pantry that I’d never used before. I wanted to see what it was like and this recipe was born!

How Healthy Is This Cabbage and Mushroom Pasta?

As far as a Nutritarian recipes go, this one is a very decent one to be used as a once-in-a-while “comfort food” type dish. There are lots of veggies in here, including the mushroom AND onion G-BOMBS!!

For someone like me, I won’t be making this often because I have a difficult time controlling myself around pasta (HEY I know my limitations:), but this one did the trick when I had the craving the other day…and I didn’t go too, too crazy eating it. :)

This would be a nice dish to have alongside a large salad, with maybe some steamed veggies on the side. As long as you keep your portion of the pasta to 1/2 cup (ish), then you’re all good.

It’s very easy to make and relies on Asian flavors a little bit, so your tastebuds should be quite pleased. :D I mean, I know mine were.
