Tips From Chef Todd 

Each month, NBFA Chef and Food Service Supervisor Todd Daigle will provide healthy tips on the recipe to give more options for taste or dietary restrictions.  

Gluten Free? Substitute the fettuccine or linguine for a gluten free pasta.

Don’t have Walnuts in the Kitchen? Swap out the walnuts for pine nuts.
