gluten free butternut squash spinach catelli pasta recipe

Gluten free pasta.
Do you make pasta for your family during the week? More than once a week? Are you happy with your gluten free pasta?
Catelli now offers gluten free spaghetti, penne and fusilli made with a combination of white rice, brown rice, corn and quinoa.
I was contacted recently by Catelli to try a box of their gluten free pasta and they also offered a prize of a year supply of Catelli gluten free pasta to one of my readers.
Yes, you read that right.
A year supply of gluten free pasta is my latest contest prize!

I am so excited to offer this prize to my readers. Are you as excited as I am!?
Catelli then contacted me and offered to do a professional photo shoot at my house!
Again – excited! I was asked to make a gluten free pasta dish using Catelli pasta and then share the recipe with my readers. Instead of one recipe I worked on 2 recipes and will be sharing the other recipe with you in the next few days!
The first recipe is a gluten-free roasted butternut squash spinach baked penne and then I will be sharing a gluten-free 3 mushroom Alfredo spaghetti dish.
All the recipes are easy to make, gluten-free and vegetarian.
