TIPS for cooking gluten-free pasta:
1. Always cook your pasta in a large stock pot with lots of water. This allows the pasta to cook evenly, not stick together and the starches to dilute. If you cook in too little water your pasta will end up with a gluey sticky texture.

For every 12oz of pasta you want to use about 4-6qts of water.
How to make Creamy Artichoke Pasta

STEP 5: after the veggies and seasoning have cooked down a little you will can add the liquids to the sauce.
PRO TIP:When I'm using chicken broth in a recipe that calls for less than a can or a carton of broth I like to just whip up a little broth using hot water and this better than bullion base. It's healthy and so full of flavor. Then I dont find myself trying to use leftover broth before it goes bad in my fridge.
