Easy Broccoli Pasta Dinner

Sometimes, a girl just needs a simple dinner.  When I want one, I usually reach for a jar of pasta sauce and some broccoli.  This time, I thought I would try out some gluten free pasta. It turned out great!

Easy Broccoli Pasta Dinner


1 box gluten free spirals
1 tbs olive oil
2 heads broccoli
1 red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
1 cup lentils
3 cups vegetable stock
1 jar organic pasta sauce

  • Boil vegetable stock in a sauce pot and add lentils.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • Chop broccoli, garlic and red onions.
  • Heat a skillet on medium high heat.
  • Add olive oil.
  • Add broccoli, onions and garlic.
  • Cook for 20 minutes on medium heat.
  • Warm up pasta sauce in a sauce pan.
  • Cook pasta per box directions.
  • Assemble and eat!
  • Serve with a large dinner salad, if you like!

The gluten free pasta was really good.  I can't tell a difference between that and regular pasta.  I definitely think this will be an easy dinner item in our rotation.


  1. I actually like gluten-free pasta better than regular pasta! It's just slightly chewier. :-)

  2. You must try the delicious Vegetarian Dim Sum House in China Town. Mostly vegan, watch out for the honey!

    Also, give Blossom a try. It's more upscale-one of my NYC favs.
