This ZENB Tomato and Mozzarella Spaghetti Nests recipe is a delightful and visually stunning choice for a holiday dinner party appetizer, adding a touch of elegance and flavor to your festive spread. The clever use of spaghetti to create nests not only makes for an impressive presentation but also offers a unique and fun way to enjoy a classic combination of tomatoes and mozzarella. Made with ZENB Spaghetti, made from 100% whole yellow peas, even your gluten-free guests can enjoy this better-for-you starter during the holiday season. The vibrant colors of the tomato sauce combined with the creamy mozzarella make these nests a festive and inviting way to kick off your holiday meal extravaganza.

(View recipe)

When it comes to feast fare, it’s all about warm spices, hearty root vegetables, and bold flavors. This recipe brings all that, plus the vibrancy of Ethiopian berbere spice (easy enough to find in gourmet markets), plant-powered ZENB pasta, and chicken thighs — because turkey already has its time to shine. It’s also a study in texture, with the glorious contrast of crispy skin and juicy meat, along with special garnishes, like golden raisins and toasted almonds. Serve it family-style for maximum vibes.

Eating your vegetables has never been so delicious. Our take on pasta primavera keeps it simple and combines the expected veggie and pasta sides into one easy dish. (Can you say “lightning-fast cleanup”?). Bell peppers and spinach sauteed in olive oil and garlic add tasty veggie crunch, while alfredo sauce adds a decadent creamy finish to the dish that will have your guests hungry for more.
