Creamy Pasta Soup with Malunggay

Updated on June 19, 2013

Isn't it amazing that when we are stressed, feeling lonely, wanted to be warm, sick or watching the television, we are sipping a bowl of creamy pasta soup? Well, this is life...

This recipe of mine features a pasta soup that comes with creamy and thick soup. Traditionally, this is cooked with cabbage, but to make it healthier, I replace cabbage with Malunggay or moringa.

Malunggay as the "Miracle Tree"

Malunggay or Moringa was dubbed as the "Miracle Tree" due to it's compressed nutrients present inside every leaf.

In same amount, Malunggay has 7 time the Vitamin C of oranges and 17 times calcium of milk. This is also very rich in iron, enzymes for cell renewal, fiber, and many more.

Way back four years ago, my doctor asked me resign to my graveyard job as I'm anemic. He then recommended that I take moringa capsules as this is very rich in iron. And, after two months I went back to him and my blood is normal.
