Description

Pasta is such an easy meal to prepare and there are some great gluten free options out there to try. Rather than go for the traditional tomato based sauce I decided to try and make something lighter so went with a simple leek and lemon sauce. To compliment the spaghetti I served it with a piece of paprika coated chicken. Perfect for a quick, simple but tasty gluten and dairy free mid-week dinner.

Enjoy!
