Quinoa pasta with corn, bell peppers, and tomatoes
Gluten-Free Friendly, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Vegetarian, <600 Calories
2 Servings, 590 Calories/Serving
The generous mix of vegetables in this pasta is inspired by maque choux. Pronounced mock-shoo, it’s also known as Creole succotash, because it contains such a similar blend of crunchy-sweet garden produce. It’s likely a mashup of Creole and Native American dishes (even the name is thought to be a French approximation of a Native American word.)
