    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    This recipe comes to us from Eileen Plichta.
    Muffaletta is traditionally served as a sandwich made with a loaf of Italian sesame bread and served with a marinated olive salad, white cheeses and salami.
    Makes 6 servings
    3 large garlic cloves, crushed
    1 cup chopped green olives stuffed with pimientos
    1 cup pitted and chopped black-ripe olives or Calamatas
    ½ cup roasted sweet red peppers, chopped
    1 cup olive oil
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1/3 pound gluten-free salami
    ½pound provolone cheese
    ½pound mild white cheese
    1/3 pound gluten-free mortadella
    1/3 pound gluten-free prosciutto
    1 loaf of gluten-free Italian bread, with sesame seeds
    Cooks note: The roasted red peppers are Italian-style, available at many Italian delis.
    Take one loaf fresh gluten-free Italian bread -usually with sesame seeds (one big round for a traditional Muffaletta or individual sub loaves will do fine for smaller sandwiches). Cut the loaf ( or loaves) in half, and scoop out a little of the inside to make some room. Make the olive salad by combining the olives and roasted pepper, garlic and vinegar. Drizzle some of the olive oil and juice from the olive salad on each side of the open loaf -- use plenty. On the bottom, place some salami, olive salad, provolone, mild cheese, and mortadella. Top with the other half loaf. Slice into wedges (or eat the individual loaves).

    Spaghetti with clams has long been a favorite, and during a summer trip to Italy's sunny Amalfi coast a few years back, I was lucky enough to enjoy a gluten-free version of this quick, cheap, easy Italian classic. I find the recipe works best with Schar brand gluten-free spaghetti, but feel free to substitute your favorite.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound dried Schar or other gluten-free spaghetti
    ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
    2 shallots, thinly sliced
    5 or 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    2 pounds Manila clams, scrubbed clean
    ½ cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
    10 to12 sweet cherry tomatoes
    ½ cup dry white wine
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced into small cubes
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    ½ cup Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated
    Lemon, as garnish
    Directions:
    Boil 6 quarts of salted water in a large pot. Add pasta, stirring well to prevent sticking. Cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta, toss lightly with a splash of olive oil, and set aside.
    Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan. When oil is hot, and nearly smoking, add shallots and garlic and saute until soft and translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes, stir well, so as not to burn the garlic.
    Add the clams, wine and tomatoes. Cover and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until clams have opened.
    Add 2 tablespoons chopped parsley. Whisk in butter to thicken sauce slightly.
    Drain pasta in a colander. Do not rinse pasta with water - this will remove the pasta's natural starches. Place pasta into the clam saute pan and mix thoroughly. Season to taste.
    Pour pasta into large serving bowl. Garnish with remaining parsley. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges, and grated cheese on the side.

    Risotto is a classic Italian starter open to endless variation. Whether you go sweet or savory, a creamy base is a must. Stick with Arborio rice if possible, though most short or medium grain varieties will do in a pinch. The key is not to over-stir as you add the broth—trust the rice! In this recipe, a great balance is born between the salty cheese and zesty, fresh mint.
    Ingredients:
    1½ cups Arborio rice
    1 cup frozen peas, thawed
    2 tablespoons fresh mint, roughly chopped
    1 small yellow onion, diced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    4 tablespoons butter
    1 cup white wine
    4 cups chicken broth
    ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Heat broth in a small saucepan over stovetop until warm but not boiled.
    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium pan. Cook onions and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook for about 2 minutes until well-coated with butter.
    Add wine and cook until liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes.
    Ladle ½ cup of warmed broth into rice mixture until absorbed. Repeat ½ cup at a time until rice is cooked but still firm, about 25 minutes total. Reheat broth if necessary.
    Fold in peas and remove from heat. Add cheese and mint. Season with salt and pepper before serving.

    Recently, I had the pleasure of eating at a friend's house. He made a version of this dish, and a I was so impressed, I took notes. This is a nice variation on the classic Italian dish of sausage and peppers. This recipe makes a tasty, delicious easy to make meal that is great by itself, preferably with a glass of chianti, and also pairs nicely with rice.
    Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
    ½ pound sweet Italian sausage, cut into chunks
    ½ pound hot Italian sausage, cut into chunks
    1 tablespoon potato flour
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    ½ cup red wine
    ¾ cup gluten-free chicken broth
    ⅓ cup Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated (optional)
    ¼ cup chopped Italian parsley
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 pickled cherry peppers, chopped, plus 2 tablespoons liquid from the jar
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    Cook sausage until it is golden brown, and set aside.
    Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge with potato flour.
    Add another tablespoon of butter to the pan, toss in the dredged chicken, and cook about 3 minutes, until browned, but not cooked all the way through.
    Add the onion, peppers, garlic, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste and cook 3 minutes.
    Add the wine, bring to a boil, and cook about a minute, until it is reduced a bit.
    Add the broth and bring to a simmer.
    Cover and cook about 5 minutes, until the sausage and chicken are cooked through.
    Move the chicken, sausage and vegetables to a large plate of serving dish.
    Bring the heat to high and stir in the parsley and cherry peppers and the liquid into the pan.
    Boil until reduced by one-third, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Pour the sauce and cherry pepper mixture over the chicken, sausage and vegetables.
    Serve over rice and top with parmesan cheese as desired.
