Just because you are gluten free doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy pasta.

You can find a wide variety of gluten-free pasta on the market: rice, amaranth, quinoa, corn and mixed wheat-free grains.

This recipe calls for amaranth pasta.

Amaranth is a high protein grain that contains more fiber than wheat and higher levels of calcium, iron and phosphorous than spinach.

However, you can use any form of gluten-free pasta.
