This recipe is of course not only gluten free but also contains no meat.  You could certainly add chicken breast to the recipe for a more filling option or to satisfy the meat eaters in your family.  If you are not concerned with gluten free eating, you could definitely substitute a traditional pasta or a whole grain pasta for a still delicious and healthy option.

Do you have a favorite gluten free recipe that doesn’t sacrifice your favorite flavors or foods?  Are there other dietary restrictions you or a family member are required to follow and require special meal prep?  Please share!
