Gluten-Free Pasta for Dinner

On my grocery trip this past Saturday, I decided to peruse the Whole Foods store near us to see what gluten free items they had for us to try.  I compared several different products, and knowing that Andrew misses having pasta, I decided to try the Ancient Harvest Quinoa Shells.

This evening I decided to make the pasta I had bought because, like every other day during the work week, I wanted to make something easy.  I don't have an official name for this and quite frankly it's pretty easy.

  • 2 boxes of the Ancient Harvest Quinoa shells
  • 1 jar of pasta sauce (whatever your favorite)
  • pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni to make it a slightly more low fat)
  • 1 bag of shredded mozzarella cheese (give or take a little)
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cook the pasta per the directions on the box.  You may want to cook the full time or a couple of extra minutes depending on your oven.
  3. Strain the pasta and pour into a 9 by 13 inch pan.
  4. Mix in 1/2 cup of shredded cheese (or so), 1/4 package of pepperoni and pasta sauce.
  5. Layer more pepperoni and cover with more cheese depending on your taste.
  6. Place in the oven until the cheese on top has melted and serve!

Enjoy and happy eating!!!
