Fall Vegetable Pasta with Bacon and Alfredo Sauce

September 24, 2019



Fall Vegetable Pasta with Bacon and Alfredo Sauce

As we reluctantly pack away our shorts and flip flops and dig out our thicker ankle-length leggings, hoodies, sweaters, and scarves, we can look forward to the emergence of a new crop of seasonal vegetables at the farmer’s market. Summer produce such as strawberries, zucchini, and heirloom tomatoes fade out of season, and sturdy pumpkins, autumnal squash, robust cabbages like Brussels sprouts, and snappy kohlrabi provide a rainbow of new tastes and textures to cook with. Little beats the flavor and simplicity of roasting a big pan of fall vegetables—luckily the crisper air makes heating the kitchen with the oven a non-issue—but you can also achieve the caramelized, lightly charred appeal that high, even heat gives to vegetables in a cast-iron skillet slicked with an adequate amount of fat. 

Our fall vegetable pasta embodies the flavor of fall in an easy one-skillet dish. We kept this dish paleo/Primal by swapping spiralized butternut squash for pasta, and using our No-Dairy Alfredo Sauce that’s every bit as thick and creamy as the traditional dairy-heavy alfredo sauce. Crisp bacon adds a smoky, salty bite that enhances the pleasant bitter notes of the Brussels sprouts and accentuates the sweetness of the squash.

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

Keto Avocado Smoothie, Two Ways

For folks who like their shakes frothy, thick, and creamy, avocados are the secret ingredient to a successful smoothie. Unlike a banana or nut butter, they add a little heft without stealing the show with overpowering flavor. An avocado adds texture with mostly neutral flavor, allowing other ingredients to make a bigger statement. For our Keto Avocado Smoothie, two scoops of Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel add 10g of bovine collagen peptides...and a kick of creamy, vanilla coconut taste that pairs perfectly with avocado.
