Last dinner night with just us. Operation see the family starts late tonight. Time for some yummy gluten free comfort food. For me it is always pasta. Please keep in mind when I post these that you may use baco's or any bacon substitute if you are pescatarian or vegetarian. I post the full meat version of my recipe's for my family meat eaters.
Penne Pasta is one of my absolute favorite types of pasta. I love the way it holds the sauce. I don't make it from scratch. It just is too time consuming to shape a hundred little individual tunnels. That is what industrial sized pasta making machines are for. I am very thankful for the gluten free penne I found at sprouts. It is spendy, $3.75 for one 12 ounce box, but worth it for the occasional splurge. You really cannot tell it is gluten free. AT ALL! Schar
does a great job!
