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. 

GLUTEN-FREE FALL GARDEN PASTA

INGREDIENTS:

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)


DIRECTIONS:

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.

ENJOY!

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