Pasta with figs

Unfortunately, the fig season is already coming to an end. Therefore I would like to celebrate this great fruit once again with a creative recipe. Have you ever tried figs in a savory dish? Since I came up with this pasta, I regret not having tried it much earlier. And besides the figs, this pasta also combines many other tasty treats.

macro friendly gourmet recipe

I always love it when tasty and creative recipes are still wholesome and healthy. And this pasta convinces not only with its creative components, but also with its nutritional values.Thanks to the cauliflower, we have even more volume and nutrients in the sauce. And the anchovies, tuna and nuts provide us with enough protein and healthy fats.

This pasta is therefore ideal for both gourmets and fitness fans. As always, I am very much looking forward to your feedback on how you liked the recipe.
