I've really been focusing on cleaning out my diet as much as possible which has led me to eliminate eating regular pasta. Thankfully there are so many great gluten free alternatives to eating regular pasta like, brown rice pasta and spelt pasta, which is what I used in this recipe. This recipe has been one of my go to pasta recipes for a while now. The perfectly cooked pasta paired with the the sweet sun dried tomatoes and the fresh dill is absolutely amazing.

1 8oz. box of spelt fettuccine or any pasta that you prefer
