Summer Recipe - ROASTED VEGETABLES PASTA WITH CALIFORNIA AVOCADO PESTO SAUCE

Pasta dishes are typically high in simple carbohydrates. So here, I am using a high-protein, high-fiber pasta mix with vegetables and avocado. This recipe aside from being delicious also has the added benefit of keeping you fuller for longer and regulating your blood glucose much better due to the fiber and protein content.  I recommend buying pastas that provide 5 grams or higher of fiber and 10 grams or higher of protein per serving (2 ounces dry).
