Hearts of Palm Pasta with Chicken & Asparagus


This filling & satisfying dinner takes just ten minutes to make. The texture & consistency of the Hearts of Palm Pasta is similar to regular pasta, but the only ingredient is hearts of palm, a vegetable made from the core of a palm tree. It’s very low in calories, and full of fiber & minerals.

You’ll find it on the shelves of the dry pasta section at Trader Joe’s, but if it’s out of stock, you can use TJ’s Kohlrabi Vegetable Pasta (located in the fresh veggies area).

To make this a well-balanced meal, we’ve added protein & veggies. And we’ve spiced it up with TJ’s tangy & mouthwatering Cuban Style Citrusy Garlic Seasoning Blend.
