As with all gluten free pasta recipes you will need to use gluten free pasta.  These are now widely available in supermarkets and health food stores.  It is particularly important with gluten free pasta to follow the cooking instructions on the packet since gluten free pasta is less forgiving and it is very easy to over-cook. 

Adding a good slug of olive oil to the boiling water really helps keep the pasta pieces separate while cooking.  This helps avoid the clumping together which you can get with gluten free pasta (particularly spaghetti).
