My Favorite Pasta!!!!

Alex's Favorite Pasta!

1 pound GF penne pasta

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)

1/2 cup pitted and sliced black olives

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!
