Baked Ancient Grain Fusilli with Veggie-Laden Marinara

One way to enjoy protein-rich ancient whole grains is in pasta in this baked fusilli. Kamut and Jovial einkorn are ancient forms of non-hybridized wheat. Another ancient grain that finds its way into pasta is quinoa. Experiment with different varieties: Kamut has a mild flavor and texture that’s pretty darned close to regular pasta (making it a good choice for whole-grain pasta newbies). Jovial einkorn is a bit heartier, while quinoa falls somewhere in between. I used fusilli here, but penne or elbow macaroni would work just as well. Because this is made with our veggie-packed marinara sauce, it’s a kid-friendly dish for little ones who are reluctant to eat their veggies.
