The grains include brown rice, quinoa, and amaranth.

The quinoa seed is native to Peru, and the amaranth seed is native to Mexico.

Quinoa is not a true grain but a seed, and it contains the most protein when compared to any other grain.

    • Yes I thought so when I found the recipe. It was originally made with Orecchiette pasta, which I prepare some pasta meals with. But as you seen I changed it for gluten free Penne pasta.

      The brown butter sage gives the dish a wonderful flavor.

      Thanks Jovina for taking the time to stop by and commenting.
