Tomato Sauce Recipe For gluten-free Pasta Shapes

Recommended Posts

I have found some fun pasta shapes made by Tinkyada. I'd like to be able to make something that would be similar to Alphaghetti for my kids, but I don't know what to use for the sauce.

A regular pasta sauce seems to have a stronger flavour than the kid-friendly version we used to buy before going gluten-free and ketchup alone isn't quite right either. Has anyone been able to make a sauce that is similar to the commercially available product? (either alphaghetti, or franco american spaghetti, etc.)

I don't know if this will work:

Plain pasta sauce and cut it with some chicken broth, add a little milk or cream (don't boil after the milk). This might lighten up the flavor for you children.

!! YES - here's the secret (drumroll....): condensed tomato soup. Not being celiac myself, I used to always use Campbell's when I need to reproduce that not-quite-pasta-sauce/not-quite-ketchup flavored sauce (btw, it works great with indian food) - but now that I have my celiac son Izak, I've switched to Amy's brand, which is really good. You may want to throw in part of a small can of tomato paste too, depending on how thick you want it. But that flavor you're looking for is condensed tomato soup. Don't add any water - just use it straight. Let me know how it turns out!

DS1&only(so far!): born 7/12/05 * chronic diarrhea from age 5 mos. * WF/gluten-free from age 9 mos. * NO MORE LOOSE POOP!

10/19/2006 Tested positive for DQ2 Heterodimer (HLA DQA1*05/DQB1*02) and negative for HLA DQ8. Have followup appt. with ped. GI in December!

Update: Told GI I was unwilling to do serum tests (give him gluten). GI said if what I was doing works, then keep on keepin' on! Happy, healthy & nearly two now! Occasional rash & loose poop from drinking bathwater, so switching to all gluten-free beauty/personal products.

You guys are great! Thanks for the suggestions.

I never would have thought about consensed soup. I'll have to see if that gluten-free brand is available. We haven't bought tomato soup since we went gluten-free. Can't wait to give it a try!

I have to second the Amy's soup recomendation. My daughter loves it. I cook the pasta, dump it into a pot with Amy's Creamy Tomato Soup, add a little garlic powder, Italian herbs, and salt and pepper. (Don't really have to add the Italian herbs if you don't want to).

Is this like the Chef Boyardee flavor?

Yes - it's that Spaghetti-O's flavor of kechup-y tomato sauce. Condensed tomato soup. Go figure. ;)

Plain canned tomato sauce works pretty well, too--it seems milder and not as acidic as pasta sauce (like there's a difference between "pasta sauce" and "tomato sauce?"). It's also MUCH cheaper than Amy's. And I usually do add a bit of cream, too, but I bet a little cornstarch or rice flour would work...
