Gluten Free “Healthy” Pasta?

Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / My Recipes

YES PEOPLE!! It is possible. "Healthy" pasta. AND pasta that is gluten free!! I LOVE my brown rice pasta, in moderation of course. 😉 Brown rice pasta (I'm a fan of Lunderberg's brand) is a great complex carbohydrate. The only ingredient is brown rice.
