Quinoa Pasta

A Delicious Quinoa Pasta Recipe With Avocado Sauce

Quinoa pasta is a healthier alternative to normal wheat pasta. Fresh Italian wheat based pasta is so delicious but can irritate the gut if eaten in excess. This is why quinoa pasta can be used as an alternative. Using avocado as a sauce is a great tummy pleaser. It is creamy, tasty and a perfect compliment to the quinoa pasta. It is not a typical Italian pasta dish but it is delicious. We hope you enjoy it.
