Gluten Free Creamy White Wine Pasta




This past weekend was so great, I made tons of delicious food with my friends and relaxed. Friday night was "girls night." We all got together and I made them this pasta, crab stuffed mushrooms, and one of my friends made delicious Bruschetta. We drank wine and laughed until our stomachs hurt. Something about just getting your girls together and once you start that laughter it is so hard to stop, and it can totally change your week. It seems like lately when I see my friends it has been to help them with an issue that they are facing or they are helping me, but this weekend was just full of laughter and no depressing issues, it was great. You definitely need those days to vent or be someone who listens to your friend venting, but you also need these nights to just not care and have fun.



 One of my best friends has Celiac Disease, which is where you are allergic to gluten. She struggles with finding recipes, so I decided to make this gluten free so she could eat everything with us. Her allergy isn't as severe as some, where I can cook things that have gluten in the same kitchen as long as I just wash off the utensils before using it on the gluten free food. This disease is hard for her and I am sure is hard for everyone struggling with it. In the future, I would like to make a week full of gluten free meals just to see what she goes through and hopefully give some people who are gluten free some fun recipes. Let me know in the comments if that is something you might enjoy.

So here is the creamy, white wine, gluten-free, chicken pasta I made my girls. Enjoy, and feel free to make it your own!
