Quinoa Pasta  
A type of pasta product made with quinoa flour, which is a type of flour ground from the seeds of the quinoa plant: a plant cultivated mainly in South America as a major grain-like crop. Pasta products made with quinoa flour are a good alternative for people who cannot consume pasta made from wheat because of an allergic reaction to the gluten in the wheat. Quinoa pasta comes in a variety of popular pasta shapes. Corn is often added to the quinoa flour for added flavor and texture.
