Vegetable Quinoa Pasta

Last night I roasted cauliflower and broccoli drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt, pepper, and onion powder. I roasted the cauliflower at 400° for 45 minutes and the broccoli at 400° for 20 minutes. I had leftovers so I was inspired to use the veggies today for lunch for my daughter and I.

This pasta is so easy and so quick to make it took me six minutes total to make it.

All you need to do is cook your desired amount of pasta. For two of us I just put in two handfuls of pasta in boiling water for five minutes. Then I drained the pasta in a colander.

As the pasta was cooking I placed 2 1/2 handfuls of roasted veggies in the microwave for one minute to reheat. I added the warm veggies to a bowl and 2 tablespoons of butter and 3 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese and a tiny pinch of salt.

I added the drained pasta to the mixture and stirred. Voila! Lunch was done! Healthy and yummy even though it tastes like you’re doing something naughty and being indulgent. Enjoy!
