    Traditional pasta sauce is naturally gluten-free. Although finding a safe gluten-free pasta sauce is work, and finding a sugar-free, gluten-free pasta sauce is virtually impossible. That is why the following recipe is so great. Not only is this homemadepasta sauce recipe easy and quick, it is also healthy and gluten-free.  Please remember to use all gluten-free spices and ingredients and to check with the manufacturer if you aren't sure.

    Pasta Sauce (Gluten-Free)

    Preparation: 5-10 minutes
    Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes

    Ingredients:

    • ½ cup of water
    • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 stalk of chopped celery
    • 1 chopped onion
    • ½ teaspoon basil
    • 2 tablespoon chopped parsley
    • ½ chopped green bell pepper
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 (6) ounce can tomato paste
    • 1 (8) ounce can tomato sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
    • 1 teaspoon oregano
    • ½ teaspoon himalayan salt, or to taste
    • dash cayenne red pepper
    Note: The canned tomato paste and sauce can be substituted for the equivalent amount of homemade paste or sauce. Also, as always if certain ingredients don't agree with you, leave them out or substitute them for things you like. I know many people like bell peppers so I kept them in the recipe, however I substitute bell peppers for sauteed mushrooms; and I am not big on onions, so I use half an onion to taste.

    Directions:

    1. Combine the garlic, onion, green pepper & celery in a large skillet.
    2. Add the 1 tablespoon  olive oil and saute' until soft.
    3. Once the ingredients become soft, add any ingredients that are left.
    4. Stir well. After covering, simmer for up to 7 minutes.
    5. Stir again and simmer another 2-3 minutes.
    6. Serve with your favorite gluten-free pasta and  have yourself a healthy, gluten-free pasta dish.
    7. Top with feta, basil, or toppings of your choice and enjoy!

    Keep up the good work.

    If finding a safe gluten-free pasta recipe is work, why are you adding an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce to your recipe, especially if you are calling it a homemade pasta recipe? It seems to me that I could still use just the can of tomato sauce with a can of tomatoes and have the same thing, and throw in a few of my favorite ingredients. This is not much of a homemade recipe. I thought you said that finding a gluten-free pasta sauce was work? Not much work there: it is the same as any pasta sauce recipe. What am I missing?

    Lighten up, Vince man! It's just a recipe! And, as for what you are missing (since you seem to be unaware), a lot of new celiac patients (like me 15 years ago) have no idea what is actually in a good pasta sauce since they have never been forced to make it from scratch, much less fiddle around with the recipe. So asking them to "add a few favorite ingredients" like you suggest is a bit naive. Every site needs a good basic recipe and in my opinion, this is it... gluten-free and low glycemic.

    This is a great beginners recipe. you give the option of adding prepared sauce or using tomato paste and sauce. it's amazing how many people have never experienced spices and herbs. This helps broaden their menu planning, at the least! Enjoy!

    She means, It is difficult to find store Jarred or canned pasta sauce without a lot of sugar and questionable ingredients in the US making it yourself is relatively simple an you leave out the questionable ingredients. I found simpler sauces without sugar and extra ingredient at World Market since some of theirs are imported from Italy. Maybe try an Italian market if you don't want to make it

  • About Me

    I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.
