Is quinoa pasta good for you?

This month, I took the TresOmega Challenge. TresOmega sent me some samples to try out in my daily diet, and I have to say that I was skeptical. I love pasta, and having blood sugar issues, I felt like I needed to try something different. Quinoa is on the lower GI side, so it doesn’t cause large spikes in your blood sugar.

So, I made some Quinoa pasta. I added so shrimp to my quinoa fusilli along with a brown butter and garlic parmesan sauce.

It turned out really great! Bryan isn’t the biggest fan of seafood and he really liked it. He didn’t know the pasta was any different until I told him so!

Check out the recipe for the pasta below. And let me know, what your favorite pasta alternatives are down in the comments!
