An original,tasty alternative to my favorite Barilla n˚5 spaghetti:kamut pasta.
Kamut is believed to be of Egyptian origin. Compared to common wheat, Kamut is richer in protein (by between 15% and 40%), minerals such as magnesium and zinc, Vitamin Bs and Vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids, but contains a little less dietary fibre. Kamut provides much energy and is appreciated by people with active lifestyles. It is easy to digest and is generally well tolerated by those with a sensitivity to gluten. Kamut flour is not refined or bleached, and thus retains all its nutritional qualities.
-60 g Kamut pasta
-1/2 onion,finely chopped
-1 clove garlic,finely chopped
-1/2 lb seafood.I used" Picard's" mix
-1 ts olive oil(Castelas,Baux de Provence AOC)
