Does gluten-free Pasta Freeze Well?
0

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.

Thanks

Jennifer

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.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
