I can not believe we are already in the second week of July! The Summer seems to be flying by and we are having a blast. I hope you are too. We are always on the go and my garden has all kinds of goodies growing in it so, I decided to throw it together with some quinoa pasta. It is the perfect dish for a picnic, pool side and you can make it ahead.

I jam packed the pasta dish with healthy vegetables and paired it with an easy vinaigrette. I also sprinkled hemp seeds on top for a dose of omegas and yummy crunch. I used beet greens which have a bit of a tart taste to them. I love it but, if you do not you can switch it out for rainbow chard or other leafy greens.  Feel free to add red onion to your pasta as well. I chose to leave it out in this batch because my littles wouldn’t eat it.
