Ever tried Quinoa? It makes a nice substitute for rice or couscous, and this recipe is a delicious introduction to its fabulous taste and texture.

Great recipe. Things I like about it: simple, quick, healthy. I used about 1/2 lb chicken as we are not big meat eaters, and it was plenty. Instead of jar of pasta sauce (which I don't like) I used one can Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes and one 8oz can tomato sauce and it was perfect. If you like Quinoa, try the Black Beans and Quinoa recipe on this site ... excellent.

I LOVE this dish. It is so versatile, and incredibly simple to prepare. Instead of peas, we like to substitute spring veggies or mixed veggies. You can also use different flavors of spaghetti sauce to change it up a bit. Serve with a spring mix salad and yeast rolls and you have a great, filling dinner that even some of the pickiest kids will eat!
