1 t ground turmeric
3 T olive oil
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 red onion, chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
3 medium carrots, chopped
1/4 pound snow peas (if you do not have snow peas on hand, frozen green beans work well)

3 t GF flour (any blend will work)
salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large saucepan of water to boil and add the GF pasta with the ground turmeric. Cook until tender.
Drain, reserving 2 cups of the cooking liquid.
In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and saute the garlic and onion until softened, about 3 minutes.
Add the red pepper and carrots and saute for 3 more minutes.
Stir in the snow peas, black olives and cooked pasta, and cook for 3 more minutes.
Sprinkle with the GF flour and stir until combined. Cook for 1 minute, then gradually add a little less than 2 cups of the reserved cooking liquid.
Cook until bubbling and thickened, another 2 - 3 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve while hot and enjoy!
