What’s For Dinner? Parmesan-Lemon Fettuccine with Squash!

Why We Love It

Fresh pasta is such a delicious treat, especially for Celiacs who often are limited to dried pasta. Spinach fettuccine ups the ante by offering something a little bit different. This recipe makes enough pasta for about four people.


  • 1 package RP’S Pasta Spinach Fettuccine
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 medium yellow squash, diced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated lemon zest (plus a bit extra for garnish)
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¾ cup gluten-free chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup heavy cream
  • 2 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook fettuccine according to package directions.
  2. Drain the pasta, reserving ½ cup of the cooking liquid, and return the pasta to the pot.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the onion and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the yellow squash and sauté until almost tender.
  6. Add the lemon zest and continue cooking for 1 more minute.
  7. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan.
  8. Add the chicken stock, heavy cream, lemon juice, and reserved cooking liquid.
  9. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking until the sauce is creamy and coats the back of a spoon.
  10. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Toss the pasta with the sauce and serve. Garnish with additional lemon zest and enjoy!

    Thank you very much for sharing your recipes with us, who always have to choose gluten-free meals over the regular ones. They are quite helpful to me, since the variety of gluten-free products is rather limited at the market. I will add a fresh spinach salad dropped with lemon juice to the meal in order to enhance the taste, and I believe it will be perfect!
    I have recently learned the value of 100% gluten-free dishes especially since there is almost no guarantee when you dine outside your house (just read this article – Gluten Free Restaurants – and you understand the difference between really gluten-free and only seemingly gluten-free restaurants. Outrageous.).
    Thanks for the post!
