Low Carb Penne Pasta in Pesto-Cream Sauce

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
7 ingredients
8 servings
This recipe uses the recently introduced low-carb pasta for a flavor-packed, yet healthy side dish that satisfies your pasta craving without breaking your low-carb diet! Note: The 'Zaar nutrition chart doesn't recognize "low-carb" pasta, so be sure to add the number of carb grams shown on your pasta box. For example, my brand contains 5 G. net carbs, so my corrected total is 7.5 G. net carbs in each serving.
