Supergrain Gluten-Free Quinoa Pasta

Sunday night dinner: we wanted something tasty for sure. I realized we haven't had pasta since long. We have been on a high protein diet and beans is a quick and easy go to for a quick meal. I planned to make pasta with white sauce...luckily I found gluten free corn and quinoa pasta in the pantry. Why not give this a try? I was so surprised: this pasta tasted delicious when cooked, just like regular pasta. It did not taste different, chewy, or hard. It was just perfect. I served this quick under 30 min. pasta dish with a side of wholewheat bread toasted with garlic butter. This recipe is so easy and self explanatory. You can add more veggies with marinara sauce and make the recipe totally gluten free and light.

Boil pasta in boiling salt water for 8-10 minutes.

In a pan heat 1 tbsp of butter and saute cauliflower florets and bell pepper cubes till you obtain good color. Add sliced mushrooms and cook till done.

Add cooked pasta to veggies and mix well

In a sauce pan heat 1 tbsp. butter. Fry 1 tbsp. minced garlic. Add 2 tbsp. all purpose flour. Mix and saute till done. Whisk 2 cups milk. Add salt and pepper powder. Let the sauce thicken.

Add sauce to pasta. Grate Parmesan cheese and mix well.

Serve and enjoy!!
