In my earlier posts I have highlighted the benefits of Quinoa as how healthy it is It has all nine amino acids and good source of Protein specially for vegetarians

Generally the normal pasta which we eat is mostly carbohydrates as it is made up of all-purpose flour, and then the ingredients which we add to cook pasta like milk, butter and cheese are major source of fats
