Mexican Style Fusilli | Gluten Free Pasta Dish

This simple dish comes together in just 30 minutes!  Perfect for those evenings that tend to just fly by.  With many different GF pastas on the market I recommend the Catelli fusilli for this dish.  It cooks fast, holds up well with the tossing and leftovers don’t go mushy.  My celiac son requests this dish for school lunches!
