Grain Free Springtime Pasta Dinner

Yesterday was the first 75 degree day,  filled with sunshine and blue skies on the mountain, it was glorious!  It was also a frenzied day as I rushed to get things done before my trip.  A simple dinner with little prep time was in order, I reached for a box of Cappello’s Gluten and Grain Free Fettuccine.

I tossed the cooked fettuccine (cook time 1 minute) with a bit of olive oil, hemp hearts, cooked baby organic green peas, freshly chopped organic mint, a dash of sea salt and a few grinds of fresh ground pepper….Dinner Done!  If you’re thinking that this dinner lacks protein I assure you it had plenty.  Cappello’s Fettuccine contains 6 grams of protein per serving, the peas contained 8 grams, and of course the beautiful organic Hemp Hearts, 15 grams per 1/4 cup.  29 grams of protein, a nutrient dense meal that didn’t take hours to prepare.
