So I have a little bit of a pasta addiction. I seriously crave it several nights a week which is not good when I'm doing my best to stay gluten and dairy free. I choose to eat this way because it agrees with by body more internally and externally. I just look and feel so much better when I stick to it.
The great news is there are so many traditional pasta alternatives like yummy rice noodles-yay! Love me some rice noodles. They come in all shapes and sizes but I went with the traditional spaghetti style for this dish.
I cooked the pasta according to the package instructions while I sautéed some cut up green, yellow and red bell peppers in minced garlic and olive oil.
After I strained the noodles, I mixed everything together and added some crushed red pepper ( I always like to spice it up a bit). This dish is so simple and satisfies those pasta cravings while remaining gluten and dairy free. Winner Winner..Pasta Dinner!
I discovered this amazing Cappello's Gnocchi made from almond flour in the frozen food section of Earthfare and literally had a mini freakout sesh. This is my first time seeing gluten free gnocchi and knowing my pasta addiction, you can understand my excitement.
I cooked the gnocchi according to the package instructions while I heated up some delish Dave's Gourmet Red Heirloom Pasta Sauce. This stuff tastes so homemade-big chunks of tomatoes in it which is my fave. I mixed the two together and thew a bunch of basil on top because fresh basil is just the bomb. This dish was so delish ya'll and again it followed my gluten and dairy free diet. Saweet!
A glass of vino is always a necessary accompaniment to my pretty pasta and lately I've been enjoying a little Syrah.
This La Granja Syrah is only $7 bucks at Trader Joes and is just juicy and easy drinkin. The rooster laying the golden egg is what caught my eye of course.
