Simple, easy recipe. Pasta is great as it is generally easy to cater for both gluten and non gluten eaters. Just cook the two types of pasta in two saucepans and divide the sauce into both. This is important as gluten free pasta is not only expensive, however also has a different taste than wheat based pasta and many people who are not gluten free find the taste difficult to accept.
