Chicken Pasta with Sausage, Pepper and Onion Recipe {Gluten Free}

Did you find this post helpful, inspiring? Save THIS PIN in its blog board in Pinterest. 😉

I have to confess that I don't mind whole wheat pasta. There's something about the texture that I don't like and I love all crazy whole grains, so it's not a whole grain problem. Honestly, I think it comes from when I was pregnant in my first trimester with my third child and made a wholemeal macaroni and cheese when I was sicker. That seemed to scare me for life.

However, I love this gluten-free pasta that is a blend of organic brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, and corn. Not like a strict gluten-free diet, but I love experimenting with different ways of eating and I love trying new products.

Many people these days are being diagnosed with gluten intolerances / allergies or even celiac disease, an immune reaction to consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. Over time, this reaction produces inflammation that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents the absorption of some nutrients.

Fortunately for these people, today you can find a ton of gluten-free products on the shelf. There is something really rewarding about serving something that is unexpectedly gluten-free, like pasta, for a gluten-free crowd or for those with a healthy mindset who are interested in trying a gluten-free diet. People who are not very familiar with gluten-free consumption may not realize that they can still eat something like pasta … and most who served a dish like this won't even notice the difference!

Chicken sausage is a precooked Costco sausage filled with pieces of bell pepper and basil and is also gluten free and I sautéed it along with some peppers and onions to create a tasty tomato sauce.

Top it with a tasty goat cheese or leave the cheese for a dairy-free meal. If you are looking for a delicious meal, comforting and easy for company or any day of the week, try this chicken sausage, pepper paste and onion, gluten free! I'm already imagining turning leftovers into pasta bake: pour in some extra sauce and top with fresh or grated mozzarella cheese and bake!

Add a splash or two of reserved pasta water to the tomato sauce, pour the sauce over the pasta, and top with crumbled goat cheese and fresh basil (optional).

Notes

Depending on the products used, you probably don't need to add salt to this dish. If you are skipping the sausage, you may need something.
