  1. This sounds and looks so delicious!! One question though…I hear so many bad things about wheat these days and I see your recipe calls for wheat fettuccine? Are you worried about the wheat debate?

    1. Laura, Everything is controversial, it seems. I have no problems with wheat but if you prefer, use Quinoa Pasta instead.
