Pesto pasta

This is rice pasta with pesto seasoning, peppers, mushroom, tofu, and fresh parsley.

I pick out the tofu for the kids and put a bowl of chicken for them to have instead. We also had salad and I made him gluten free croutons with cutting up small pieces of very toasted gluten free bread with Earth balance margarine. The croutons probably wont pass the test for an adult but for a 4 year old boy it works just fine.

So, how it's made...

I fried up some mushrooms, with garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, 1 tbsp of oil, and some water to soften them up.


While you are cooking the veggies you need to cook the rice pasta in hot water. 



Add pine nuts, and pesto sauce and let it all cook. 


The pesto sauce I use is below. It's certified gluten free. 



Once the mushrooms are cooked and the water has evaporated...

 Add in peppers, tofu, and chopped parsley (optional)

 Let it cook to soften the peppers, and then when the pasta is ready add in the pasta and more pesto seasoning.

That's it, enjoy!
