Dinner Time - Gluten Free Baked Ziti

I love baked ziti.  Always have.  So much cheesy goodness.  Great meat sauce.  For those of you that have never had baked ziti, think a combination of lasagna and pasticcio.

Using the best ingredients, just like anything else in cooking, makes for better food.  So when I decided to try baked ziti gluten free, I was worried about the new pasta more than anything.  

The brown rice pasta held up perfecly, as you can see from the picture.  The cheese coated it perfectly, and it didnt have flavor or texture any different than a normal wheat pasta.

Try this one, you won't be sorry!

Sausage and Polenta Pie

I saw a great recipe for Sausage and Polenta Pie in a rundown of the best gluten-free winter recipes yesterday, and we thought we’d give it a try.

The classic combination of Sausage and Peppers never loses it’s appeal. However, the twist of adding polenta to the top I find much better than the typical bread it is paired with in typical sandwiches.  The creamy and cheesy polenta makes a great counter-point to the spice and earthiness of the sausage and peppers.  A great meal, all in one dish.

Give this one a try the next time you are looking for a healthy alternative to a classic.
