QUICK AND EASY GLUTEN-FREE TOMATO BROCCOLI PASTA
I threw this together today for lunch and it looked so bright and fresh I thought I'd post about it. It's made of microwaved Trader Joe's organic broccoli florets, my high-protein phony bolognese sauce and these wonderful gluten-free shells, which I cooked up before assembling the rest. I'd been staying away from pasta for quite a while and then had a great lunch at my niece's (she's cooked some wonderful gluten-free vegan dishes for me before: here, here, here and here) and she served some rice pasta with the stir-fry and I thought, "why have I been depriving myself?" In the last week or so I've been eating some form of pasta once a day and I find it's had me cut back on snacking. Hmnn....wish I'd known that before!
