Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta

Hey lovely! Are you looking for a pasta recipe that won’t leave you feeling bloated and gassy?

I got you!

This Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta isn’t only healthy and delicious but also super easy to make. #winwin

You can use any type of meat you want, but in this case, I’m using leftover chicken, chopped into small pieces.

And for this Gluten-Free Pesto Pasta we’re also going to make homemade pesto. You thought it was going to come from a jar? No way Jose!

This pesto sauce is super fresh! And don’t worry, it’ll take you less than 5 minutes to make. Make sure to prepare a little extra to enjoy with scrambled eggs in the morning or elevate any roasted veggie recipe.
