Heartland Gluten Free Pasta and a Recipe for Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

Posted Dec 05 2010 12:00am

We recently had the opportunity to sample a new Gluten Free Pasta - Heartland Gluten Free Pasta .

GF Spaghetti[6]

Gluten free products seem to get better everyday and this new pasta is no exception.  It has quickly earned a spot near the top of our Favorite Pasta list!  

Why do we love it?

It taste just like pasta!  Simple but very important to us on the GF diet!

It is not as starchy as some other GF pastas - sometimes when I am cooking GF pasta, the water is so starchy I think I could almost turn it into a gravy.  Not this pasta - cooked up clean and beautiful.

Lastly, the company checks to make sure the pasta meets the standards of less than 20 ppm.  

 Serve this with a easy to make Homemade Spaghetti Sauce - 

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

The best, easiest, cheapest, safest way to eat gluten free is to make basic ingredients yourself.

Once you get the hang of it, your pantry will always be stocked with the basic items you need to whip up a sauce or two, you will find you can easily conquer a wonderful homemade spaghetti sauce in 15 minutes or less (same amount of time it takes the noodles to boil) , and you will grow to love the flavor of fresh sauce.


  • 1 T good olive oil
  • 1 chopped yellow onion
  • 1 ½ t minced garlic
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes or 5 large fresh tomatoes, diced
  • ½ t parsley flakes (or 1 T chopped fresh)
  • 1 ½ t kosher salt
  • ½ t pepper

Heat olive oil in a sauce pan. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until translucent, 5 – 10 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook for one more minute.

Stir in the tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

For a twist, my Gluten Free Teen loves to top the pasta and sauce with Feta Cheese!  

Serve with some homemade rolls or make some rolls with the Betty Crocker Bisquick Pancake and Baking Mix, Gluten-Free .
