Description

Sometimes the only dish that will hit the mark is pasta and luckily there are lots of great gluten free pasta options available. This dish has a lovely fresh summery feel to it, all we need now is the summer weather to accompany it rather than the gale force winds we are having just now!

Enjoy!
