Good For: Healthy puppies (with the puppy booster), adult dogs, healthy or under weight seniors, picky eaters.
Our Italian Beef Pasta recipe is a classic filled with so many pasta-bilities! A favourite among even the pickiest of pups, this dish serves up more than just a yummy meal - it’s packed full of ingredients that provide an array of nutrients for your pup. We can understand why pups are tortellini in love with this one!
Tomatoes: A traditional pasta dish wouldn’t be complete without the nutritious tomato. Tomatoes contain a high level of lycopene, a nutrient that is beneficial for antioxidant effects, anti-inflammation, healthy weight loss, and is even known to have anti-cancer and heart health properties.
Semolina Pasta: This whole-wheat, high-fibre pasta noodle makes for a healthy carbohydrate source for your pup. Semolina pasta is a nutrient-rich noodle, providing a high level of protein, fibre, B-vitamins, and magnesium. Due to its high concentration of nutrients, semolina pasta may be beneficial in maintaining a healthy weight, heart health, and digestive health.
Lean Ground Beef: Part of what makes this meal so palatable is the high-quality beef we use! A good protein source provides your dog with amino acids, which play a vital role in metabolism and body functions. Amino acids are used to build and maintain muscles, provide a foundation for your pup’s fur, and are crucial for enzymes for all body processes.
Eggs: Another protein source in this recipe are eggs. Eggs contain an excellent range of amino acids for your pup. BUT eggs are also a great source of essential fatty acids that can promote anti-inflammation and heart health. The high levels of the nutrient, choline, found in eggs can also be beneficial for healthy fat metabolism.
Hemp Seed Oil: This oil is an excellent source of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids and in a perfect ratio to support anti-inflammatory effects, promote healthy digestion, and exert benefits on skin and coat, heart health, and cognitive function.
Stock your freezer with this meal for the perfect pasta night!
