Gluten-Free Quinoa Pasta Recipe

I decided to try a vegan gluten-free quinoa pasta. It is super easy to make; boil it for four minutes and it is done! I really did like this pasta it had a similar texture to normal pasta and it paired nicely with marinara or pesto sauce. I decided to experiment with recipes and I came up with this green bean and sundried tomato combo that is super easy to make.  I am happy to say it turned out tasting really good. The dish is super healthy and very flavourful. 

Quinoa pasta recipe with sundried tomatoes and green beans

If you would like to pair the dish with a pasta sauce I recommend using a pesto sauce. I found it tasted really good with the tomatoes and green beans on top. I also dressed the green beans in some lemon to add some flavor that tasted great with the pasta.
