Let me start off by saying that pasta and pizza are probably the foods I miss the most. Perhaps I was Italian in another life. Obviously there are AIP versions of both of these dishes but still I miss the originals from time to time.
After travelling to Italy on my honeymoon I was inspired by all the different pasta dishes I saw in the various regions. When I got home I wanted to recreate a light pasta dish that I saw when I was visiting Amalfi, Italy. Of course I needed to make some changes in order to make it Autoimmune Protocol friendly but I still think this dish looks a whole lot like the original and it tastes delicious, too! My other condition was that it had to be a quick and easy weeknight meal – conditions achieved!
Sardines are included in this recipe because they are very nutrient dense (something we strive for on AIP). I hardly even noticed they were there. If you are not fond of sardines then you could switch them out for tuna, salmon or mussels.
What is the dish you miss most on the AIP? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below! Let me know if you give this recipe a try.
