Qunoa Pasta "garden Pagodas"

Recommended Posts

At my health food store, I found the Ancient Harvest Quinoa Garden Pagoda pasta - they are multi-colored funky spirally things, and they just looked irresistable so I picked some up without a plan for them. Last night, i thought about the pasta and the leftover grilled chicken I had - and suddenly, I wanted a pasta salad.

In no time flat I threw it together. Yes, I checked the pasta every minute for doneness and rinsed with cold water. Then I tossed with cubed chicken, a diced avacado, some whole olives, grape tomatoes, diced scallions, and topped with some home-made ranch dressing (from mayo and soy sour cream, plus lemon juice and only a few seasonings).

My daughter and my husband both liked it every bit as much as I did - the two of them polished off the leftovers for lunch today - and they are the biggest protesters against gluten-free food! Oh, my son had also devoured some leftover noodles tossed with margerine and a dash of yeast and sugar, his favorite way to eat pasta.

So i consider this a major victory in gluten-free cooking in my home!

These are my family's favorite too :-)

Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.
