Coconut Quinoa Primavera Pasta (AKA Better Than Mac N Cheese)

Oh yum. So delicious. When made like this, creamy pasta is no longer on my no-no list. In fact my goal is to find a way to enjoy every unhealthy food I used to eat before learning about nutrition, guilt-free. Knowledge is power and this dish makes me feel strong, happy, and healthy! Also,this recipe makes a LOT of food; lunches for the week!

8oz organic quinoa pasta
1 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 large lemon juiced
Oregano
Parsley
Salt
Pepper
Red crushed pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper chopped
1/4 red bell pepper slivered
16oz broccoli steamed
9oz sugar peas steamed for 4-5 min only
7-8 oz fava beans, cooked

Toss all ingredients together and enjoy! For work lunches I plan to serve over some fresh spinach for extra greens. Energy all week long!
