Nowadays, pasta doesn't just mean wheat; it can be made fresh with all sorts of vegetables to spiralise at home, or more complex veggies can be shaped and dried by manufacturers and bought from stores at our convenience. One such type of pasta is black bean spaghetti, which goes well with homemade pesto.
