Tomato Quinoa Spaghetti

Last night for dinner we were pressed for time, and therefore pressed for what we had kicking around in the fridge as well!

Thankfully, we were both heading to do physical activities: Will (the hubby) to hockey and me to the gym - so something substantial was on the menu!

Our favourite packaged pasta, I prefer fresh, is by TruRoots - and it's made of Quinoa, Brown Rice and Amaranth - so gluten-free! It tastes better than regular white or whole wheat pasta and is WAY better for you. Unfortunately, it's hard to find - I can only find it at the Barrie Costco and usually buy 4 or 5 packages when I go so we always have some on hand.

So onto the recipe: Tomato Quinoa Spaghetti

Fresh tomatoes cut into wedges
Kalamata Olives
Red Onion diced

EVOO - tuscany flavoured
2 cloves of garlic freshly pressed
Italian or Greek seasoning

Cook spaghetti according to package instructions, once rinse and strained toss with dressing and add in fresh ingredients once plated. Sprinkle with feta cheese if desired.

Bon appetite!
