    Just made this more my boyfriend and I……amazing. So delicious and knowing it was actually healthy was an added bonus. I thought the pasta wouldn’t be enough without an actual “sauce”…..I was wrong. Thank you!! Will be a keeper in the rotation

    This looks good! Can I substitute the olive oil with coconut oil? Or will that mess up the flavor??
