Gluten Free Cheesy Pasta + Kielbasa Dinner

Oh yeah….

It’s about to get really cheesy up in here.

And…

Gluten free y’all!

 

Gluten Free dinner ideas

 

I LOVE THIS RECIPE, there I did my all caps and freaked out a teeny bit about how super easy and kid friendly this skillet dinner is.

I love pasta, but pasta does not always love me back so much.  So I use gluten free pasta, and make something sensitive tummies and hard-core-wheat-tummies can eat too.

This is a 30 minutes or less recipe and there were no traces of this cheesy goodness on my family’s plates when we finished.

That is always a good sign right?

The BEST homemade sweet + sour chicken! (gluten free too)

Even before breaking up with gluten six years ago, I had tried numerous times to create a crispy and sweet version of one of my restaurant faves.

Each time it was ok, the sauce was pretty good but the chicken pieces were kind of……meh.

Not great and I would eat it of course but not be thrilled.

UNTIL NOW Y’ALL!

 

How to make sweet and sour chicken

 

Since making this a few weeks ago the fam has requested it over and over.

So I have had to get creative and use BBQ dipping sauce and a few other things to make this crew of chicken fans happy. [Read more…]

Peanut Noodles with Chicken (gluten free!)

Peanut Noodles with Chicken #pastarecipes #glutenfree #gf #twelveOeight #howtomakepeanutsauce

 

I love noodles, cover them in a million different sauces or leave them buttered with some parsley and you can count me in.

And what’s better than combining a delicious peanut sauce with tender pieces of chicken?

Well you could make it gluten free.

And make it in less than 30 minutes.

Now we’re talking, and this dish is so darn good.

I love the flavors of combining the peanut butter with sesame oil.  This has become a dish my family asks for often and when the ingredients are easy to pull together and dinner is on the table that fast….I am more than happy to oblige.

Plus, if I haven’t said it yet, I LOVE THIS DISH SO MUCH.  And so does my gluten-intolerant tummy.

We are both happy and full, and even better, you can make a big batch and nom on this for lunch the next day.

Yep, everyone will think you were in the kitchen forever, and that you are a master of noodles and peanut sauce.
