QUICK DINNER – Tomato Basil Pasta

Tomato Basil Pasta

Tomato Basil Pasta - Gluten Free

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!  I hope you have a loved filled day.

I know many of you will be rushing off to have dinner with your honey tonight and need a quick meal solution for your little ones and the sitter.  My children love this meal and I love how quick it is (we ate it for lunch on Saturday).  The nutritional yeast acts as a great substitute for parmesian cheese…it makes the pasta sauce nice and creamy all without having to use dairy…good stuff!

INGREDIENTS

24 oz. jar Gia Russa Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce

1 box Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta (Rotelle) – Gluten Free

1/3 cup KAL Nutritional Yeast

1/4 – 1/3 cup fresh chopped basil
