Pizza Pasta - A Quick And Easy Gluten Free Recipe

You've gotten in late; the kids are hungry. You are out of gluten free bread so sandwiches are out. What do you do? Keep these few things on hand for a rainy day: pepperoni, spaghetti or pizza sauce, cheese (regular or casein free), and some gluten free noodles.

We were in that situation the other day when we got home much later from a doctor's appointment later that I thought we would. I had some leftover noodles in the fridge, so I took a couple bowls and put a layer of noodles, pasta sauce, pepperoni, and cheese, heated them through in the microwave, and called it "Pizza Pasta."

My kids love it and beg for it on occasion. It's a great way to get in the pizza flavor without pulling out the flours and yeast and taking the time to throw together a crust. If you have a little more time (though it still doesn't take much), you can do it this way:

Pizza Pasta

GF pasta
pizza or spaghetti sauce
cheese, shredded

Boil the pasta according to instructions. In a sauce pan, simmer the sauce and the pepperoni. Drain your pasta, add the sauce, and put the cheese over each serving. It's really easy!

Serve with a salad or some veggie sticks with dip!
