Broccoli Sage Pasta with Garbanzo Beans

Broccoli Sage Pasta with Garbanzo Beans

In this recipe I use rice pasta which is a great wheat-free/gluten-free alternative to traditional pasta. It doesn't weigh you down the same but the consistency is still very similar to traditional wheat pasta. I have tried many other wheat-free alternatives in the past and rice pasta is my favorite.
