For the Healthy Eating Pasta Lovers

Do you love pasta?  OK that was sorta a silly question because who doesn't love pasta?  If you are one of the few people out there who dislikes the carb filled goodness of pasta I am severely jealous of you.  I, as you can tell, love pasta.  While I almost always buy wheat pasta it still just fills "bad" for me.  So I set out on a mission to find a healthier way to enjoy these yummy noodles. 
Ahha!  I found it...quinoa pasta!  That's right pasta made from a supergrain!  I picked mine up at The Fresh Market but I'm sure you can find it at most grocery stores.  Whipped up a fresh sauce to go on top and had a big plate of pasta that I felt pretty dang good about:) You should give it a try!

just saltee the green pepper and onion and add the cans of tomatoe goodness to the skillet to heat up
I drained the juice off and only used half of the tomato paste
o yeah and feel free to add spices!!

Happy Eating!
Love, T


  1. Yum! I love pasta and have never tried this - will have to check it out!

  2. Quinoa pasta is so good! For newbies, be careful not to overcook it because the quinoa pasta gets a weird texture if cooked too long :) have you tried Shirataki noodles? Only 20 calories per serving-- it comes in a liquid that is a little fishy, but I just give them a good rinse, toss in a stir fry and shove my face with noodles! :)
