Nutty Pesto Fettuccine

I was super excited when I came across Cappello’s gluten free pasta at WholeFoods. Low on the glycemic index and made primarily from almond flour and egg, Cappello’s fettuccine has a deliciously rich, buttery flavor and silky consistency. I was blown away by how simple and delicious it tasted, especially paired with a yummy pesto sauce. It is a comforting, yet elegant dish that the entire family will enjoy.
