Green Lentil & Quinoa Supergrain Penne Pasta Bake

‘Tis the season of holiday cheer, peppermint mochas and generosity, yes—but it’s also perhaps the busiest time of the year. Between work, parties, fitting in gym time, shopping, baking, cooking and more parties, your diet can easily be neglected. So instead, fuel your holiday schedule with good-for-you, gluten-free and protein-packed meals.

What you need are no-fuss, balanced recipes that will keep you supercharged, satisfied and energized for your never-ending to-do list. Here are 10 perfect pasta recipes that fit the bill—all made with our Supergrain Pasta™ and POW! Pasta, packed with plant-based nutrition and all deliciously gluten-free.
