This elegant, energy-boosting meal is flowing with nutrients!

We’re not always in the mood for pastas with thick and heavy sauces. Our Linguine with Baby Arugula and Fresh Herbs recipe is perfect for when we’re in the mood for something a bit lighter, but just as delicious. This tasty recipe is made with only 100% clean ingredients, so we can feel good about digging in morning, noon, or night. We like the combination of Italian seasonings, fresh greens, and baby tomatoes, but you can increase your Superfood intake with other add-ins, like grated carrots, diced zucchini, or pine nuts. Refrigerate this dish for a colder option that is terrific for summer.
