For one package, the price: $2.99. That’s more than I can say for other GF pastas. Sure, there are many great GF pastas, and some are not but this this is one of my favorite Gluten Free Pastas. It is budget friendly and tastes great. Typically, gluten free versions costs more but this one does not hurt your wallet (and your gut if you need a GF version pasta).
Secondly, this is full of protein! And a great source of protein too! Quinoa is not only high in protein but a great plant-based source of protein!
In a large pot, bring water to boil, adding salt, if desired. Add pasta and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 7 – 10 minutes or until al dente. Do not overcook. Remove pasta from heat and drain thoroughly. Rinse if desired. Serve as you would any regular pasta.
To make this a full meal, add marinara sauce or with olive oil, garlic, and thyme, top with seasonal roasted or sauteed vegetables, “Beyound Meat” or “Gardein” groundless plant-based meat cutlet or vegan meatballs. One of my favorite meatless meatballs is from Veganize It! with some adaptations that I added.
*Important to remember: This pasta (overall gluten free pasta) cooks faster than regular pasta. Do not overcook this pasta, for sure!
