Gluten-Free Fall Garden Pasta

Ok scoopers! This is my first attempt at creating my own GF recipe...I just love fresh veggies and brown rice pasta... so I decided to combine them! Hope you and your loved ones enjoy this healthy dish together. 



one red bell pepper
one green bell pepper
one small red onion
1/2 cup sliced olives
one ear of white or yellow corn, boiled until tender

8 oz of your favorite brown rice pasta (I suggest Trader Joe's Brand)
12 oz of your favorite marinara sauce (I love Prego!)

Sea Salt
Mozzarella cheese (optional)


Dice peppers and onion. Set aside. Cool corn and cut off cob.

Prepare pasta as directed on package. Rinse and drain thoroughly!

Pour pasta sauce in a medium pan. Stir in olives, corn, peppers and onions, reserving a few of the olives for garnish. Cook until sauce is bubbly. Serve immediately over hot pasta on a platter, topping the meal with remaining olives and mozzarella cheese, if desired. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Fresh steamed broccoli or green beans make great side dishes.


*****(TIP: if you have any left-over veggies, use them in omelets the next morning for breakfast:))
