I’d like to thank California Walnuts for sponsoring this post!
I’ve loved walnuts my whole life, but just recently began to experiment with this tasty ingredient in my recipes.
One of my favorite walnut-inspired meals is this comforting and nourishing Veggie Baked Penne with walnut sauce. The flavor here is incredible, and I love that this dish is packed with so many heart-healthy* ingredients!
*Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. (FDA) One ounce of walnuts provides 18g of total fat, 2.5g of monounsaturated fat, 13g of polyunsaturated fat including 2.5g of alpha-linolenic acid – the plant based omega-3.
