Brown Rice Penne w/ Spinach and Mushrooms

Posted on Updated on


Our local store has recently expanded their bulk foods section adding 3 gluten-free pastas. I thought I would give the brown rice penne a try so I created a simple entree to check it out. This recipe is lower in fat, gluten-free, dairy-free, diabetic friendly, and vegan.

    I forgot to mention this pasta was very good and not as expensive as the health food store’s.
