This amazing Garlic Pasta is gluten free and vegan. I am always looking for healthy and delicious dinners that are easy, inexpensive and that the entire family will love.

Recently Tresomega reached out to me about the blogger recipe challenge contest and I was immediately onboard. I had several ideas, but I decided this garlic pasta was the one I would go with first.

I have played around with this Garlic Pasta recipe a few times and it was always a hit with my family. We loved garlic and this recipe packs some punch with it, most of all it is the perfect healthy dinner to get that healthy garlic in and give your immune system a boost.

When you make this you can use fresh or dried herbs. Both taste amazing, so during the summer I like to pick the herbs from my garden, but dried herbs taste amazing too.

This Garlic Pasta dinner takes less than 20 minutes to make and is incredibly inexpensive, therefore it is the perfect dinner to put on your budget friendly meal plan. It is also the perfect dinner for a meatless Monday. I served it with my French bread recipe and broccoli. For the broccoli I simply used the same pan that I cooked the sauce in (once it was empty) and I added a few tablespoons of avocado oil along with lots of fresh garlic, salt and pepper. I added a splash of water, and then cooked it until it was tender.

Every time I make this Garlic Pasta the whole family eat their entire plates and it is hard to resist seconds.

Gluten free noodles can be difficult, therefore I tend to stay loyal to the ones that I have tried and that cooked well. I never know what to expect when making a new brand of noodles, and I have had many noodles turn into mush, or not cook all of the way. Finding one with excellent texture can be a challenge, while I have to say that the Tresomega gluten free organic quinoa spaghetti turned out absolutely perfect. I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with it. I cooked it according to the box directions and it had excellent texture, taste and did not get mushy at all! My favorite noodles are a quinoa blend.

Give this Garlic Pasta recipe a try on your next busy day! If you love garlic and pasta like we do then you will find this going on your meal plan regularly. I plan to put it in every week! With shopping at Target, Winco or Trader Joes, I found this dinner to cost around $6 for the 4 of us. Along with bread and a vegetable it is easily less than $10.

Whether you are on a budget, or just love flavorful and fast dinners, this will be the recipe for you.
