What's for Dinner? Pasta!

This is a simple and delicious recipe to make for lunch or dinner. Serve with a spinach salad for the perfect combo! Quinoa pasta is an alternative to whole wheat pasta. You can also use corn or rice pasta as a wheat alternative but I have found that quinoa pasta cooks similar to wheat pasta and doesn't fall apart or get sticky. When possible, buy organic ingredients. 

Preparation time: 1 hour
Servings: 4 

Ingredients:
1 box of quinoa pasta shells
1 cup marinara sauce
1 medium tomato, diced
1 small onion, chopped
1 bunch of asparagus
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons basil, chopped
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano, chopped
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 ½ teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Parmesan Cheese (optional) 

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan combine tomato sauce, tomato, onion, asparagus, garlic, basil, parsley, oregano, pepper, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper.
