Gluten Free Penne with Pancetta and Asparagus in Vodka Sauce

You can tell spring is on the way when bright green asparagus starts appearing in the produce section of the grocery store. Asparagus is generally available year round, but spring asparagus is crisper, grown stateside and is more of a spring green than the wintertime variety. Some of my favorite spring pasta dishes use asparagus . . .  Read More »


Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups

When the weather is cold, baked pasta tops my list of comfort foods. Nothing warms you up on a chilly night like a big helping of piping hot pasta baked in a delicious tomato sauce and covered with melted cheese. With that in mind (and below freezing temperatures), I decided to fix Gluten Free Beef, Basil & Goat Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups for dinner. This dish has everything I was looking for; noodles wrapped in a savory beef, basil and goat cheese filling that are topped with a flavorful tomato sauce and covered in gooey mozzarella cheese.  Read More »

Gluten Free Chicken Florentine Pasta Toss

Traditional Chicken Florentine can be heavy, with lots of cream and cheese and bread crumbs, but here’s a light, quick, gluten-free version that can feed a crowd. Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Penne with Golden Milled Flax Seed makes a tender, wholesome backdrop to tender browned chicken, bright cherry tomatoes, salty and savory Pecorino Romano cheese, and velvety wilted spinach. Read More »


Steak and Blue Cheese Bowtie Pasta

Did you know the recommended serving size for meat is only a few ounces? Think about seeing a steak that size of a few matchboxes on your plate – that’s just disappointing. I love this recipe because it supplements a smaller amount of high-quality steak with fresh baby spinach, a creamy sauce made with lots of meltingly soft onions, mustard, garlic, and blue cheese, and springy, nutty-tasting, al dente Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Bow Tie Pasta. Suddenly, one good steak can satisfy three or four people. Read More »

Gluten-Free Linguine with Artichokes, Sundried Tomatoes and Arugula

Need a go-to healthy gluten free entree that’s easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but definitely fancy enough for casual entertaining? I’ve got you covered with this Gluten-Free Linguine with Artichokes, Tomatoes and Arugula. What’s even more brilliant is that this entree comes together in about half an hour and all but one ingredient (the arugula) come in jars and boxes you can keep in a cupboard to pull out at a moment’s notice. This is definitely food love! Read More »


Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve combined two of my favorite comfort foods – mac and cheese, and roasted butternut squash. I love how the butternut squash adds tons of Vitamin A and C, along with extra creaminess and its bright orange color, to the sauce. The delicious Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Elbow Macaroni (Or Gluten-Free Brown Rice Elbows, if you prefer) are much more robust and better for you than regular white flour pasta elbows, and they really grab onto the cheesy, creamy sauce. It’s truly a feast for all the senses. Read More »


Quick Sesame Veggie Noodles with Pan-Fried Tofu

This salad starts with wholesome al dente Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Spaghetti or Hodgson Mill Gluten-Free Spaghetti combined with crunchy slivers of chopped cabbage and carrots, crisp chunks of snow pea pods, green onions, fresh cilantro, and sesame seeds. Toss it all up with a fresh, clean dressing made with toasty sesame oil, soy sauce, and tangy vinegar. Yum. Read More »


Asian Chili Beef Noodle Soup

This soup is beautiful. I don’t think there is another word for it. Clean, fresh, refreshing . . . those come close. I think it’s the combination of the aromatic, zingy ginger and the gentle but persistent heat of the chili flakes and green onions butting up against the fresh veggies and cilantro, the substantial Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Egg Noodles, and lots of good-quality vegetable broth. The slices of sirloin steak on top are an enticing contrast, more of a tasty garnish than the main event. I think if you took any one piece of the equation away, it might all fall apart. I know it might seem a little odd to use egg noodles in this soup; maybe you were expecting rice noodles, like a vietnamese pho. But I think white rice noodles are just filler. The combination of whole wheat and a touch of egg add just the right amount of body to the soup, which doesn’t otherwise have a lot of fat. I love biting into the soft noodles along with a slightly crisp carrot or slice of squash. These noodles are just as good in this slightly exotic dish as they are in a comforting chicken noodle soup. Read More »
