How to describe this pasta? First, there is the slight tang and zip from the lemon, garlic, fresh basil, pepper and extra virgin olive oil. Then there is the mellow buttery flavor from the vegan butter and zucchini to give it balance. All of this nicely juxtaposed against the nutty flavors of the almond and whole wheat pasta.
