Sunday Supper

Here’s what I’m cooking tonight…..Spaghetti and meatballs with a homemade marinara.   Is there really anything more comforting??

Worth mentioning is a new found favorite gluten-free substitute for traditional pasta (and also quite delicious) called quinoa pasta.  Personally, I love the Ancient Harvest brand found at Whole Foods. For those of you who missed the memo, quinoa is considered a “super food” – a term sometimes used to describe foods full of nutrients with health and disease fighting properties.  You really should get on quinoa bandwagon if you haven’t already.  It’s also high in protein and fiber which helps make you feel full and keep you satiated. As a grain, it is delicious cooked on its own in a little chicken stock or mixed with fruit and nuts or even grilled veggies. The combinations are endless. And the best part…cooking time is 10-15 minutes for those on the run. So with the ever increasing concern over gluten allergies, this makes a great substitute all your guests can enjoy. I promise even though most die hard carb lover will not be able to tell the difference.
