Mushroom, Tomato & Pesto Spaghetti Casserole using Heartland #glutenfree pasta
Posted Oct 14 2012 5:37pm
The folks at Heartland Gluten Free Pasta asked me to create a original recipe using their spaghetti. While I had seen their gluten free and Hidden Vegetable pasta in the store, I had never tried it out. Well, I’m so glad I did because their gluten free pasta is the closest thing I’ve come to regular pasta. It tastes great, has a good texture (not gritty or gooey) and cooks up al dente just as easily as a wheat pasta. It also has a lovely butter yellow color to it, which inspired me to combine it with the reds and yellows of cherry tomatoes, the browns of mushrooms and the flavors of a creamy basil sauce.
You can save time on this dish by using pre-sliced mushrooms and store bought pesto sauce. Feel free to substitute my Tofu Sour Cream or no fat Greek yogurt, for the low fat sour cream. Finally, while it’s baking, set the table, clean up and pour yourself a glass of wine!
