Quick Easy Tuna Pasta Primavera Kitchen RecipeLast week, I made a recipe with quinoa pasta and since I loved the texture of it, I am now totally addicted to this pasta. Every time I want to cook pasta, I choose quinoa pasta because there isn’t a huge difference between the traditional pasta and quinoa pasta. Plus, using quinoa means this pasta is a complete protein! Of course, if you choose whole wheat pasta it is also a great option since it has a higher amount of fiber.

Quick Easy Tuna Pasta Primavera Kitchen RecipeMy husband has been traveling for work for about 10 days that my husband is traveling for work. When I am alone, I don’t like to cook anything that takes more than 20mins to be ready (my Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet and Leek Kalamata Rice are my favorite recipes under 30mins recipes). I honestly don’t know how people love to cook for one. I think it is so boring to cook only for myself but I REALLY enjoy cooking for someone else like my husband or friends. I have to confess: Sometimes I even buy some frozen cooked meals so I don’t have to cook for one. Yes, I know. This is awful and it is not healthy at all, but life is not perfect and neither am I 😉
