Does gluten-free Pasta Freeze Well?

3 posts in this topic

I've always been the type to cook dinners on the weekend and freeze them in single serving containers so that I don't have to actually cook during the week-I can just pop them in the microwave.

This weekend I was thinking about making Lazagna, some sort of pasta/chicken/veggie meal, and some Chicken cordon blue. I know rice freezes well, so I'm assuming that the rice pasta will freeze well also. The other pasta I have on hand is quinoa.

Will these both hold up well in the freezer?

Any suggestions on what to use to replace bread crumbs for the chicken cordon blue? I have some Pamela's baking mix on hand, would that work well?

Also, does anyone know if italian sausage is gluten-free? I would probably just grab the kroger's brand.

Tinkyada rice pasta freezes well - I have frozen lasagna and chicken tetrazzini with good results. Can't guarantee any other brand. Just be sure to not overcook it before you add it to the casserole, and freeze it right away. If you leave it in the fridge for a few days before freezing the pasta will absorb more liquid and not be as good.

As for sausage, you can't be sure unless you check the label or the company website. I believe Premio brand is gluten-free.

For bread crumbs, I make my own bread. I'm sure a bread mix would work, but you still have to make it into bread first. Don't just use the bread mix to replace bread crumbs, although it would probably work to replace flour. Bake the loaf, cut it into slices, eat a few while it's still fresh, then cube the rest and let it dry for a few hours to overnight covered with a towel to keep it clean. Bake in the oven at 250, stirring every 30 minutes, until the cubes are nice and dry. Crumb them up in a food processor - a blender works, but I think the crumbs get too small. Store the crumbs in a heavy ziploc bag in the freezer. Other options are to get gluten-free cereal like a corn flake or Chex style and crush it to the fineness you like for breading.

For coating meat, you can use instant potato flakes or Rice Chex cereal or crushed potato chips.

    • So I've been glutened....
      That sounds like a plan JMG.  If things aren't working then make a change, hopefully a positive change.  It seems to me we have more noticeable symptoms sometimes after being gluten-free a while.  I made a mistake last night and ate some tuna canned in water.  It definitely wasn't boring.  I usually have more sense than to eat tuna canned in water but screwed up last night.  They canned  it in broth of some sort.  Ingredients say vegetable broth and soy.  Yuck, not good for me.  It sure tasted good though, just ouch.  I am not saying it had gluten in it, but it does have soy and some kind of unnamed veggie monsters.  So it could be soy, or carrots or some other disgusting vegetable that got me.   Not all celiacs have additional food intolerances beyond gluten, but some do.  My gut could testify to that.  Anyway, if you have bloating, cut out all carbs and sugar for starters.  And try peppermint tea or Altoids.  Over here we have something called Pepto Bismol that helps soothe gut pain and another neat thing called aspirin.  And gluten-free beer as needed.  
    • Gluten free apparently not helping entirely
      Jean, Maybe your boss can find you a job in the office for a while?  It's worth asking maybe? It's not easy being on constant travel with celiac disease but it can be done.  Your effort to find safe food is going to be harder than most but it is not impossible.  But if you can't manage it you should really think about getting a non-travel job.  Your boss may be willing to work with you on an office position, even if it's temporary.  That would give you some time to look for a local job and also eat a safer diet. It's really up to you to control your diet and make sure it is safe.  If you can't figure out how to  do that while traveling you owe it to yourself to figure a way out of the travel. Celiac disease isn't always fun and games.  Not always.   I hope you find a way to improve your circumstances.
    • Gluten Free baby food pouches?
      Anyone know of any baby food pouches that are gluten free?  We love to have them on the go for our kids (not just baby), but I have no idea which ones to get now!  We used to get Meijer brand and Plum.   Thanks!
    • gluten free, oat free, egg free breakfast ideas needed for 6 year old
      Thanks for everyone's suggestions!  I think I felt at a loss when we had to cut oats- we used to do cheerios and oatmeal regularly and now those are out.  She has a sensitivity to oats as well as wheat/barley/rye.

      The bloating has, if anything, got worse. It seems better when I'm lay down, when I stand it gets worse. Although the lymph swelling has gone down so maybe I'm through the worst. Hope so anyway... I never used to get a great deal of GI symptoms. Certainly not so serious as the other stuff. It's making me wonder if I just react differently now having been gluten-free for some time. I've noticed lot's of you saying that reactions seem to change over time. Of course its possible the other stuff was masking the GI things. I almost dont trust my memory of those times anymore because a whole chunk of my life seems to have been lived through a brain fog. Tomorrow I'm thinking of going away for a couple of days, maybe just taking some ultra simple food with me so I can try and settle my stomach by boring it into submission

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it. Thank You,
