So this won’t go down as the healthiest recipe here on Healthy Bites Houston; however, it is one of the tastiest! My take on this classic dish is slightly healthier than the restaurant version, but doesn’t disappoint in taste! In my opinion, the key to a flavorful scampi is lots of fresh garlic and REAL butter! Yes, real BUTTER! As I mentioned, this is not the healthiest recipe to grace the pages of HBH, but it is made with whole foods and real ingredients that are good for the soul!
Italian food is perhaps my favorite type of cuisine. Warm creamy pastas, fresh basil, italian spiced meats and gooey garlic bread can’t be beat! Part of my love affair with Italian food revolves around my aunt’s homemade marinara sauce. We have been spoiled for years now with hand delivered cases of her homemade sauce, and now the store-bought varieties just don’t do it for me. The recipe is top secret, but maybe one of these days she’ll teach me her magical ways!
This dish is perfect for busy nights! Packed with vegetables and quinoa, this is a tasty and healthy dinner that your whole family will love.

Every time I buy a packet of fresh herbs at the grocery store, I tell myself, “I really need to plant an herb garden”. I always get frustrated paying $2-4 dollars for each packet of herbs only to feel rushed to use them the day I buy them since they don’t usually keep for more than a couple of days. The last time I was at Trader Joes, I finally bit the bullet and bought the basil plant for $2.99. I then stopped into Lowes to buy a pot and soil, only after consulting with my husband about whether I needed to transfer the plant to a larger pot, and if I actually needed to buy more soil. I know, I know, stupid questions for some of you more experienced gardeners, but in my defense I really have no experience with gardening!
