HEALTHY PASTAS MADE OF QUINOA, BROWN RICE OR CHICKPEAS!

​​​​​​​We all love pasta but we also know it is not something we can have daily. What if we could find a healthier option for pasta? what about a spaguetti made our of quinoa and brown rice? or some fusilli made out or chickpeas?​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Leave apart the wheat pasta and start cooking with more nutritious options for pastas. I have being using the Brown rice and quinoa pasta for a while and my kids can’t even tell they are not eating the traditional pasta. When they ask for another bowl of chickpeas spaghetti I am all in to refill those bowls.

You can easily find the chickpeas pasta in the brand BANZA and my fav is the Brown Rice and Quinoa Gluten Free pasta from ALDI, it is afordable and you find it as LiveGFree so this is also a great option for gluten intolerant people.

The secret for the most delicious spaguetti or any pasta in tomato sauce is definitly the TOMATO SAUCE
