Pesto pasta gets a healthy shot of fat with the addition of both avocado and eggs from Eggland’s Best, which have 10 times more vitamin E and 25 percent less saturated fat than ordinary eggs. Use spiralized zucchini in place of noodles for a low-carb, high-protein take on the flavorful dish.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 2

1/2 package of zucchini spirals

2 Eggland’s Best large eggs, soft-boiled

1/2 cup of pesto

1/2 cup of avocado

1 ounce of cheese, Parmesan

DIRECTIONS

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop spiralized zucchini noodles into the water, then as soon as the water starts to bubble remove the zucchini noodles with a pair of tongs to a colander to drain.

2. If your Eggland’s Best eggs aren’t cooked yet, use the boiling water that is already in the pot to poach (five minutes) or soft-boil (6.5 minutes).

Soft-boil your Eggland’s Best eggs until the whites are firm but the yolks are still creamy.

4. Top the noodles with sliced avocado and an Eggland’s Best egg.
