Are you ready for a creative gluten free pasta recipe that sounds elaborate and fancy but isn’t?
Thanks to my deliveries from Field Goods, a local company that I get a bag full of farm-fresh produce from every week, I have had to be more adventurous with cooking, which has been a lot of fun!
Have you noticed how much more often I now post Instagram photos of food?
It’s always a surprise what will be in the bag, and this week, I had this beautiful broccoflower and mushrooms that I wanted to figure out a yummy recipes for.
A broccoflower is a hybrid between a broccoli and cauliflower.
Does it look so pretty? It looks like a piece of art. Or a dinosaur.
I decided to make a pasta dish with gruyere cheese to get away from our usual tomato sauce. And since Don is eating gluten free, I used Barilla Gluten Free.
It’s the only pasta I know that truly tastes just like regular pasta — and I have tried about every gluten pasta that’s out there. Landon and I don’t mind eating gluten free with Don, because the taste is just the same.
Being gluten free isn’t always easy, but thanks to Barilla Gluten Free you don’t have to give up yummy pasta dishes. It’s made with certified gluten-free corn and rice, and non-GMO ingredients.
Gluten Free Pasta Recipe: Broccoflower Pasta With Gruyere Sauce
- 1 12 oz. box of Barilla Gluten Free Penne
- 2 cups of sliced mushrooms
- 1 head of broccoflower, cut into small pieces
- 2 tsp butter
- salt and pepper
- 3 tsp of butter
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
- salt and pepper
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the pasta for 10 minutes; don’t overcook it. Drain it and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add the broccoflower, and cook for 8 minutes.
Take out the mushrooms or use another saucepan and melt another 3 tsp of butter in the pan. Add the milk to it and let it heat up, then add the gruyere cheese to it. Whisk everything together until the cheese melts.
Add the cooked pasta, broccoflower, and mushrooms into the cheese sauce, and toss together until all the pasta and veggies are covered.
My plan was to transfer the pasta to a baking dish, sprinkle more cheese on it, and bake it uncovered at 400 for 10-15 minutes BUT the three of us just couldn’t wait to eat this. It smelled and tasted so good!
I sprinkled a bit of freshly grated gruyere on our dishes before I served the pasta.
Try this: just switch Barilla Gluten Free for your usual pasta and see if your family even notices :)
I shopped at BJ’S Wholesale Club to get a 4-pack of Barilla pasta. Visit BJ’s Wholesale Clubs on December 22nd and 23rd to see an in-store Barilla Gluten Free pasta demo at select clubs!
I hope you’ll enjoy making this fancy-sounding pasta dish that is so easy to make.
