Not only is this recipe simple, it only has 7 ingredients. (Oh, you already know that from the title.) If you were to use regular pasta, it actually only puts you at about 9, so you could still add another veggie or spice.
My intention in using quinoa was not...
Because it is a single ingredient.
It was not for health reasons.
Not because it has all the amino acids.
Not because it is gluten-free.
Not because it is trendy.
