Need a super-fast, simple, nutritious and delicious meal? Try pasta and beans. Pair the meal with a tossed green salad sprinkled with raw sunflower seeds to add more protein.
2 cups cooked whole grain pasta (4 ounces dry) (if gluten free, substitute whole grain brown rice pasta)
2 cups canned kidney beans–drained and rinsed
1 cup sliced cooked carrots or other cooked vegetable
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
½ teaspoon iodized sea salt
2 Tablespoons Asiago cheese
Combine all the above and enjoy!
