Knife, cutting board,
Quinoa Pasta, spaghetti style, cooked according to package.
1 - 2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 organic zucchini, sliced (or julienne...)
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup baby carrots (julienne, strips...or leave whole if you like the extra bite - I do!)
Cooked Shrimp (tails off; I leave tails on and just remove as I eat. My children know to do this as well).
1 fresh lemon
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Sea Salt & Pepper (freshly ground is best) to taste
Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Splash of Tabasco Sauce (optional)
Fresh Parmesan Cheese, grated
To cook Quinoa spaghetti, add to boiling water and cook for 4-6 minutes. While Quinoa is cooking:
Add olive oil to large skillet. On medium/high heat, saute zucchini, mushrooms, & carrots for 2 minutes (until just tender). Toss in shrimp & pasta. Drizzle fresh lemon juice on top, and sprinkle with fresh parsley, sea salt & pepper. Toss in skillet. Remove from heat. Sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of each serving. The cayenne pepper and/or Tabasco sauce can be added with the lemon juice, or omit if you don't care for the spice. I love spicy food, so I will go the extra step.
