Yes, you can eat this delicious comfort food. Pasta sure has gotten a bad rap in that last couple of years, but if you keep your dish heavy in vegetables, you are set to go. There is such a great variety in pasta these days. You can get whole wheat, gluten free or traditional. You pick. The earthy cream sauce makes this pasta dish eat like a meal. Feel free to finish with Parmesan cheese as well, if that is your taste.
