Simple Mediterranean Pasta

Pasta is always a quick and easy satisfying weeknight meal, and with the wide selection of gluten free pastas Fresh and Natural Foods has to offer, you can still enjoy it, even on a gluten free diet.  My favorites are the ones made with beans, because they are packed with protein and fiber as well as being just as tasty as regular pasta.  The recipe I am sharing with you today combines it with a few simple ingredients.  I add sun dried tomatoes and arugula for color and nutrients, and I add cubes of Miyoko’s Kitchen vegan mozzarella, because it is just as delicious as regular mozzarella without the dairy.  It is a really delicious combination and it comes together in only about 20 minutes so you can enjoy your dinner fast!
