Gluten Free Mediterranean tuna pasta- product review

Nothing like a easy pasta dish on a weeknight!

I recently trialed the Barilla pasta gluten free pasta and sauce range, and I have to say I was am very impressed with it! I have never attempted to cook with gf products as no one in my family is intolerant to gluten. This pasta tasted no different to regular pasta and was easy to create a dish with!

Hope you enjoy this meal I adapted from a Taste recipe.
