I have 2 words to describe this post… COMFORT FOOD. 6 years ago my son and I had to say good bye to gluten which is a challenge to say the least. It is so much easier when there is gluten free pasta that tastes this good. Every now and then you just need a taste of things that you used to enjoy like pasta. If you are gluten free or have tried it you will probably agree that one of the hard parts is finding gluten free products that don’t taste gluten free or that don’t have the consistency of cardboard. Plus they are usually so expensive. Well I am happy to report that I am going to save you all of that trouble. Look no further because Barilla gluten free pasta is hands down the best gluten free pasta you will find and it is reasonably priced. I included a coupon code below, don’t miss it! I am happy to share this recipe with you and you can find more great ideas on the Barilla Gluten Free Page Read more

It was a cool evening and the table inside was covered in papers so dining al fresco was a winning option. We really enjoyed it. Then I decided that this would be the perfect fall recipe for this Fall Festival Blog Hop hosted by Kendra of  Joy In Our Home Find all the links below and be inspired by a new theme each day throughout the week.  Read more
