Two quick pastas

Posted by on 22/10/2012

Didn’t get very creative this week, however I did manage to get out to the farmers market with my mother and my friend Deb. Was a fun day! Picked up vegetables, local chicken, a toque, and bunch of pickles that I have fermenting. Won’t go over the process a second time as I’ve done them on here before, this time I used a lot more garlic and chillies. Hopefully it’ll be delicious in a week once the fermenting process is done! I’ll take some pictures when I water process the cans this time.

This week I’m going to go over two quick simple pasta dishes. Both of them are simple, tasty, and fit in with the lowiodine diet I’m on. The versions I made are gluten free, using corn pasta that I picked up at the grocery store.

Hopefully they are a quick easy deal for you to prepare, especially if you are looking for a low iodine meal to make in a hurry. Also works great for people not on special diets.

    First pasta: oil based sauce with celery, garlic and onion.

Eat as is or with a cooked chicken breast!
This should have been both fast to make, and delicious to eat 🙂

Chilli pepper
Jalapenos

Steps: Once again this is a simple oil based sauce for your pasta.
Start off by frying the vegetables in hot oil, When the vegetables have sweat and are starting to get soft, add the herbs and toss.

Mix in with the pasta and enjoy!

Neither of these pastas are difficult to make, but both tasted quite good for the amount of work that had to go in them. It should give you a look into what can be done quickly to make something fast to eat! Dishes like these have been real time savers for me on the days when I can’t spare the time to make myself something more complex, a growing difficulty with the emotional toll everything has been having on me, and exhaustion from the thyroid replacement hormones.

I hope I have helped at least one person out with this!

Until next time,

Sean
