For those of you who don't know, I like to think that I eat 80% Paleo.
I got this mindset out of a Paleo Diet book I was reading!
80% Keeps you sane, and ON TRACK
I have lost an average of 1 lb a week doing this!
I know your looking at this and going PASTA??!! How is PASTA Paleo??!!
Well I have news for you...
Whole foods has this delicious brand of noodles made out of Quinoa Flour! Totally Paleo!
Now, whats the 20% that is not Paleo in this dish?
I have not cut cheese out of my diet... and I probably NEVER will!
Bear with me- I am not into measurements, so just season with ingredients to your liking!
Quinoa Macaroni Noodles
Italian Blend Cheese
Step 1: Cook the pasta according to the box and drain
Step 2: Drizzle the noodles with olive oil
Step 3: Toss in the Seasonings & Pesto to Taste
Step 4: Sprinkle in Italian blend cheese
Step 5: Pour the mixture into a casserole pan and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and Bake for 5 minutes at 400 degrees
***Note: I will NOT bet eating my leftovers tomorrow, because this is kind of a sanity saver (almost paleo, but with a little extra to keep me sane) ...
I'll be saving this for my next round of cravings :)
