Quinoa Pasta with Zucchini and Fennel



Have you tried quinoa pasta?  I really like the taste and texture.  I find that I need to add some olive oil to the water or it sticks, but it turns out really well.

Ancient Harvest makes a delicious quinoa pasta that has a nice texture and flavor.  The pasta is made from organic corn flour and organic quinoa flour. Try this easy recipe for a quick meal on a busy night.

Ingredients
1 box Ancient Harvest quinoa pasta
1 medium fennel bulb, diced
1 medium zucchini, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoon oil, divided
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare pasta as directed on the package.

While the pasta is cooking, heat 1 Tablespoon oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the fennel, zucchini and garlic and sauté until softened, approximately six minutes. Remove from heat.

Drain and rinse the pasta. Place the pasta in a bowl. If desired, drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil over the pasta to reduce stickiness. Toss the pasta. Add the vegetables and stir in the cheese. Add salt and pepper if necessary. Serve while warm.
