Great Gluten Free Dinner in Less Than 20 Minutes

Update: At the time of purchase the ingredients did not indicate any contaminates. However, now M&M does say the meatballs may contain traces of gluten due to cross contamination.

Every week Abisaac plays softball during the summer, though this summer has been super rainy and there hasn't been as much ball being played. However, when he's off at baseball I am on my own for dinner. Most often I opt for leftovers from the fridge because after all who wants to let all of that great food go to waste? Not this girl! But...this time I just didn't want it. I couldn't see myself eating those things again. You know what I'm talking about here.

So I went for the super easy option...gluten free pasta. Now, if you know me you know that I am not a plain gluten free pasta with a drip of sauce on it kinda girl. I like my gluten free pasta to have loads of flavor and veggies and meat and even sometimes cheese.  Here's what I did this time, I hope you'll try it too.

First I went to M & M Meat Shops and picked up a box of their Fresh Solutions Meatballs in Marinara Sauce found in the refrigerator and then I added it to my favorite gluten free pasta (Tinkyada). I added in some frozen peas & carrots (mostly because the kiddo likes them). Then I added more sauce although I must say it did not really need more sauce. I used another gluten free favorite of mine, Newmans Own Sockarooni- "made with peppers, spices and the whole shebang!"

Each of these products is gluten free, however you MUST always read every single label because as you already know sometimes companies change up their manufacturing process, change up a small ingredient (usually a starch of some kind) or add in some of that nasty "malted barley extract".

Gluten Free meatballs, veggies and pasta. Yum!
