Tri-Colour Quinoa Pasta and Tuna Salad

recipe_img

I grew up loving pasta but gave it all up just to cut down on eating so much wheat. I love eating rice, quinoa, buckwheat and loads of other smart carbs but I miss the texture of perfectly cooked pasta. However, I recently discovered a new 100% quinoa pasta. This was such a revelation and a new beginning for my pasta cooking days.

One warm balmy night I was looking for a quick and simple dinner, that was also substantial, well balanced (PCF Balanced -Protein Carbs Fat) and light. My fridge was full of crisp fresh salad veggies from my favourite grower at my local farmers market.

How to prepare

  1. Toss the Quinoa Pasta into boiling water and boil for about 3-4 minutes or until al-dente. Do not overcook the pasta as you do not want the pasta too soft and mushy.
  2. Heat the salad portion of the oil in a frying pan over a medium-hot heat. Add onion and saute about 2 minutes, add garlic and cook for another 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Add the Italian Herb Mix, mushrooms and capsicum and continue to fry for another 2-4 minutes or until slightly tender.
  4. Stir in the tuna and cook until warm. Allow to heat for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and fold in the spinach and parsley.
  5. Wisk together all the dressing ingredients in a bowl until well mixed. Pour the dressing over the salad and fold through. This dish can be served warm or cold.
