4-6 Servings
25 min

I’m all about simple, quick meals that don’t require much clean up! How about you? One-pan, one-pot… I love them all!

Typically if I make pasta (gluten free, of course!) I always make a veggie dish on the side. We don’t eat pasta often, so I save it for really busy days when I know I’ll be tired or won’t have time to spend cooking.

Since pasta is my go-to quick meal, I thought why not save even more time and cook my veggie with the pasta! You guys, it was such a hit! This is now my favorite quick meal!
