Tuna and Aubergine Dadolata Gluten Free Pasta

When you are on a gluten free diet plan, the first things you will probably miss are bread and pasta, or at least the ones you have always been used to.

And, as I am used to have pasta everyday, the transition from wheat pasta to gluten free options hasn’t been initially very easy. However, after a few trials, I have found that the best gluten free pasta available here in London is undoubtely the Italian brand Garofalo.
