Gluten Free Pasta Salad

I love pasta.

I am gluten sensitive so that can make my love of pasta  be a bit tricky.

You see, if I eat too much I puff like a puffer fish. However, my bowels love me for it as it helps everything flow! The team at Barilla have a wonderful range of pasta that I use in my home. It is made with rice and corn. How does it taste? Well, I describe it as tasting like polenta. I presented this recipe at the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Melbourne over the weekend and it went down I treat.

The secret to my pasta salad is the dressing. It is my go to dressing. Everything tastes better when you use it.

I use ingredients that are left over in my fridge. Think carrot and broccoli, plus almonds and spinach leaves. I throw in some cranberries and boom left over fridge gluten free pasta salad! If you need a higher protein kick pop in some tuna or shredded chicken!
