Gluten Free Rigatoni with Organic Pink Turkey Sauce

This is one of my daughters favorite dinners. I make it once every few weeks to keep her happy. Recently I found this fresh gluten free pasta at the market and its become a staple in our house. My daughter does not like red sauce so I make a pink sauce instead and put lots of veggies in it. Like most of my recipes, I just make it in my head, its rare I follow any recipe unless I’m baking. For this recipe you can take out most of anything you don’t like or add whatever you want in that sounds good to you. It’s very simple.
