Pasta al Pomodoro

Pasta al pomodoro is pasta with tomato sauce. This recipe comes from Bon Appetit’s May 2011 issue, and it’s the recipe on the cover. Yes, this is your basic spaghetti sauce, but it’s supposed to be authentic Italian and wonderful (and it does taste good). If you like making sauce from scratch (or want to […]

Spaghetti alle Vongole

There are five flavors total: Tikka Masala, Coconut Curry, Tamarind Curry, Vindaloo, and Classic Korma. All five are gluten-free, and […]

Pasta with Tomato-Avocado Sauce

This is the main dish my friends served when I went over for dinner. They had no qualms serving gluten-free pasta–they even like the taste of it (and who wouldn’t? Because it is delicious). They often make this simple sauce to go with their pasta; it’s a way to cook without slaving away in the […]
