Easy Quinoa Pasta with Wine Mushroom Meat Sauce


This recipe (like all of mine) is very simple and you can simmer the sauce longer for more flavor or do it like I do it and it tastes great!

What you will need!

  • 3/4 pound grass fed ground beef
  • Olive oil (about 2-3 table spoons)
  • 1/2 onions, chopped
  • cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1Jar (23 ounces) tomato sauce (I used something organic with minimal extra ingredients like tomato basil)
  • 4 ounces goat cheese (I use drunken goat – use a type that is solid)
  • Two 12 ounce boxes of Quinoa Pasta (I use shells!)
  • One tablespoon coconut sugar


  1. In a large skillet, brown beef over medium heat until no longer pink; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, warm olive oil (about a tablespoon) over medium heat and saute onions and garlic until tender; add about 1/8 cup of wine; mix well.
  3. Add mushrooms, rosemary, oregano and thyme to skillet and add another 1/8 cup wine; saute until tender.
  4. Transfer mixture into pot with tomato sauce with browned meat, simmer for up to an hour (I only do a few minutes and it is delicious) and add the remaining wine.
  5. Get your water and pasta ready – it cooks for around 8 minutes!
  6. Grate your goat cheese!
  7. Add coconut sugar and another tablespoon or two of olive oil  to sauce and simmer for as long as you like, at least 10 – 15 minutes.
