development – quinoa pasta w/ artichoke red pepper pesto


We love quinoa around here.  The designer has decided that he prefers the Ancient Harvest’s spaghetti or linguine pastas.  Tonight we tried their pagoda pasta that includes spinach and corn flavors with the quinoa.  For the sauce, warm together:

1 cup artichokes, briefly chopped in food processor
2-3 tbs virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp parsley
1 tbs lime juice
1/4 c Gouda cheese
1/2 red pepper, minced
1 tsp salt

Pour over pasta, top with Parmesan cheese, and enjoy along your favorite green salad…yum! A great easy dinner when busy dancin’ with the kiddos! 🙂
