I prepared gluten free pasta and made Jamie Oliver’s Bolognese Sauce (from his Food Revolution cookbook) to go with the pasta.
I already had ground beef cooked with onion that I had stored in the freezer, so I used that in the sauce. There was no bacon or celery in the house, so those were left out of the sauce. I did a half recipe and cooked it without the lid on to speed up the process from 60 minutes of simmering to 20-25 minutes. The sauce was very delicious, especially with fresh basil from the garden. Paired with the sauce, the gluten free pasta was quite good. I don’t know if my sweet husband realizes that he ate gluten free pasta. I don’t know if I’ll tell him. He said dinner was quite tasty!
You boil the pasta in salted water for 15 minutes and then rinse with cold water (for good texture).
My mouth is drooling just looking at this picture. Yum!
After the sauce is done, mix in the pasta. I poured a small amount of olive oil on the top and mixed that in, too. I got the idea from one of Jamie Oliver’s Meals in Minutes TV episodes.
I served mine with a salad. For the record, I know that’s a bigger portion of pasta than I’m supposed to have. I only ate half of it!
