This is an excellent pairing of gluten-free pasta and seafood: scallop and Greenland Halibut fillet. A dish that is perfect to serve if you’re staying away from red meat this Lenten season.
Pastas can be a great solution for a quick gluten-free meal planning. It is versatile and allows for you to create a variety of filling dishes. We use Corn and & Rice Spaghetti for this dish, but you can also use Penne, Fusilli, or pastas made of Soybean or Edamame. A great selection is available here that is available for delivery.
