Mediterranean Rice Noodle Dinner

Mediterranean Rice Noodle Dinner 

This past summer I had bought the Clean Eats cookbook in effort to find some new clean eating recipes. Most of the time all of our dinner ideas come from Pinterest but I was wanting to change things up this week so I reached for my cookbook. I rarely make dinners without a protein but as we gear up for lent this one seemed to be perfect. It only took about 30 minutes from start to finish to make. This will serve 4. 

1 package of rice noodles
1 lb of vegetable spaghetti - I bought mind at Wegmans but you could shred your own
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1pint of cherry tomatoes 
10 fresh basil leaves 
Zest and juice from 1 lemon 
3 cloves of garlic 
1/2 cup of kalamata olives
1 - 2 teaspoons of sea salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground pepper
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
Parmesan cheese for topping 

Some of the ingredients you will need! 
Cook rice noodles in a separate pot while you begin to cook the main dish 
In a large skillet warm the olive oil and toss in the vegetable spaghetti 
Add in garlic and tomatoes and cover for about 10 minutes so that the vegetables can soften
Stir occasionally 
Add in the lemon juice, olives and basil 
Once noodles are finished toss them into the mixture. 
Add in salt and pepper as well as the butter 
Portion out and sprinkle with parmesan cheese
