I have been looking for canned spaghetti and/or other canned gluten-free meals to take on our vacation next month. Someone was quite helpful and gave me the name of My Own Meals which I plan to order from and take with us, but I was wondering if there are any canned goods out there? I would like to have a few other things available for my 4 y/o son when we go out to eat. This will be our FIRST trip since he was diagnosed. We will have a micro and a small fridge in out hotel room, so I will have the capability to warm up food for him when we stay in. He does not like the frozen mac & cheese so I feel like I am in a rut! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hi chawk310.

Prego spag sauce (traditional) is gluten-free and I think all of Ragu's are gluten-free as well.

Hi - there is a gluten-free store :D about 25 minutes from my house that carries rice spagetti and sauce in a can by Orgran...I've never tasted it though...the store's web site is GlutenFreeMarket
Look under the online store section, under entrees...they also have meals in a cup that you could try by Gluten Free Pantry.
Good Luck!

Sara:

Thank you so very much for this information! I just ordered several "spaghettios" and the beef stew and chicken dinners which I can take with us and warm up in the microwave. I never thought I could be this excited!!!! I have bookmarked the website. I am very jealous that you have this store so close to you. But, thank goodness for the internet! Thanks again. This message board has been a life saver for me.

making spaghetti sauce from canned tomatoes can be pretty darn fast (though you can also make a slower version), and I think it's WAY tastier. you might look around for some recipes, if you like. the quickest meat based on I do is:

1/2 lb ground turkey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 chopped onion
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 tsp dried, crushed sage
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried, crushed rosemary
1 tsp salt (if you use no-salt added tomatoes)

Brown the turkey in the olive oil. Add the other ingredients except the tomato paste, crushing the stewed tomatoes as you put them in. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, one third of a can at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. Simmer for another 3-5 minutes, and eat!

Short enough you can make it while the water for the pasta comes to a boil and cooks the pasta!

Thank you everyone for the spaghetti sauces....I always thought that it's ridiculous to have to pay over four dollars for a simple jar of spaghetti sauce; it was very good, but the price seems a little bit outrageous; it was the only one the nutritionist mentioned....she missed the other sauces, kind of like she mentioned Wrigley's gum and didn't mention the others that were gluten-free (I now know which are)....anyway, thanks again.
