For those of you conquering your gluten allergy, it’s important to remember that there are gluten-free alternatives for foods like pasta and bread. Pasta is such a quick and easy food to make, so I love having gluten-free alternatives when I want boil up a quick pot of penne for dinner. Pasta is great because it has a neutral flavor and there are a million ways to prepare it. For this recipe, I even cook the penne in vegetable broth to add extra flavor to the noodles. I toss the pasta with black rice and lima beans to add new textures to the dish.
