Saucy Kamut Penne

Kamut Pasta

This is a regular pasta recipe , except that I am using Kamut pasta . Kamut flour is one of ancient species of modern wheat, it is high in protein and minerals.  Kamut products are getting more popular in food stores now, from flour to pasta and cereals. If you live in Montreal you’ll find it in Loblaws and Marché Adonis.

Kamut pasta is brownish and crunchy compared with regular pasta. I made sure the sauce is quite thick to overwhelm the strong flavour of kamut.
