Paleo Creamy Mexican Pasta.

Paleo Creamy Mexican Pasta! This recipe is all kinds of quick, easy and delish! A crazy story (ok, it’s not that crazy) is that this recipe  wasn’t even supposed to exist! We had planned to make our creamy pesto pasta and then realised… we didn’t have a lemon but we had a lime, we didn’t have fresh basil but we had fresh coriander, we didn’t have mushrooms but we had chunky bacon! So we swapped these ingredients up as a little experiment, added some spices and voilà! This is what you get! Our Paleo Creamy Mexican Pasta! And it blew our taste buds so we HAD to share it!

We think it might feature often on the merrymaker weekly meal plan! You can whip it up in around 30 minutes, be sure to make extra so you can take left overs for lunch!

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

  7. I made this a few weeks ago & everyone ate it up, even the kids! I have a spaghetti squash, do you think it would work with that instead of zucchini?

    Ohh we think spaghetti squash will be delish! Guessing you’ll just bake it in the oven… so you can just bake it then plate it up and top with the chicken/sauce! YUM!
