Today it’s all about fast and easy gluten-free pasta recipe. I believe that Monday is a good pasta night. This ridiculously easy recipe is all about fresh parsley, black beans, fresh tomatoes and lots of garlic with olive oil all tossed with gluten-free pasta. Nothing is complicated in this recipe but put everything together, and you have a pretty amazing Italian meal. This is a vegan pasta recipe, but feel free to add some shredded leftover chicken in the mix or top with loads of grated Parmesan cheese. This is probably the easiest pasta recipe that I have made that is packed with so much goodness and flavour. Feeling adventurous, add gluten-free garlic cheese monkey bread for that ultimate Italian experience

On a healthy note, I would like to add that not only does parsley enhance flavour in our food and is used for presentation, but it is also high in vitamin C, A, K and iron, all of which promote good health.

Ingredients

  • 10 oz. gluten-free long pasta, such as spaghetti, linguini, fettuccini or pappardelle
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped fresh parsley (about 1 large bunch)
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. GF dried basil
  • 1 tsp. GF hot chilli pepper flakes or to taste (I used 2 teaspoons)
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans, you can use canned. Just drain and rinse the beans
  • Pure sea salt to taste
  • Optional garnish; fresh basil
  • Instructions

  • Bring a large pot of well-salted water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente, firm to bite.
  • While the pasta is cooking, in a large non-stick pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in parsley and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently
  • Stir in basil, chili pepper flakes, tomatoes, and season with salt. Cook while stirring for 2 minutes
  • Stir in black beans and cook until the beans are heated through. About 2 minutes. By this time the pasta will be cooked. Drain the pasta and reserve 1/2 cup of the liquid
  • Add hot pasta with 1/2 cup of reserved liquid to the pan and gently toss until pasta is well coated and everything is heated through. About 2 minutes
  • Serve hot
