Who says pasta can’t be healthy? Not us. Use your favorite healthy marinara sauce and quinoa noodles and you have a healthy dinner in no time.
You can vary it up by adding other spices whenever you choose or just by changing the marinara sauce. When you get tired of turkey, try ground bison or lamb for another healthy option.

What brand Quinoa pasta do you recommend?
Hi Sapna, can’t say that we’ve really found a brand that we like above any other. In fact, the only one I can even think of is the one called Ancient Harvest. We normally just buy it out of the bulk bins.
