This recipe has a wonderful combination of flavors that are perfect for autumn. I made the recipe gluten free by using brown rice pasta and potato starch as a thickener in place of the flour. A touch of white pepper was added to the sauce and the hot sauce omitted. The apples were still firm and provided a nice contrast in texture. I think I used a touch more cheese than the recipe called for. This was served with a tossed salad for a complete meal.
It just didn't have enough flavor for me
I used turkey kielbasa, 2 Jonathan apples, and spinach rotini pasta. I also omitted the hot sauce and final 1/2 cup shredded cheese; it wasn't needed. This lovely pasta dish was perfect for a chilly autumn night.
