Note

You can always add some more vegetables if you would like to. My recipe is always a bit different because I like to use what ever I have in the fridge at the moment. This keeps it interesting.

A good and quick pasta recipe is always my go to food when I am tired and don’t know what to cook.

Good to know

Brown rice pasta and corn pasta are high in fiber, amino acids and are gluten-free.
