Gluten Free Spaghetti Casserole

This is a Classic Recipe that has been part of Our Family for years, and Now it is 
Gluten Free!!

12 oz Uncooked GF Pasta
40 oz Italian Sauce
3/4 lb American Cheese
1.5 lb Ground Beef
1 Green Pepper - Chopped
1 Med Onion - Chopped
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil water in pasta pot and cook pasta according to package directions, until Al Dente. Pasta will get softer in oven, so it is better to have it firmer when boiling. 

 While pasta is cooking, preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Begin to brown ground beef, adding peppers and onions half way through. 

Remove skillet from heat and stir in pasta. 

Add sauce and stir until well blended.

Transfer to a casserole and mix in 1/2 lb of the american cheese, diced.

Cut the remaining american cheese into strips, and arrange over the top of the pasta. 

Cover casserole with foil, and bake for 30 minutes until sauce is bubbling, and  cheese is melted. Remove foil and continue to bake for an additional 5 - 10 minutes until cheese begins to brown. Remove from oven and serve hot with your favorite G Free bread or serve it alone. 


Note: We used Schar Gluten Free Spaghetti, and it was Delicious!!

  1. This was AMAZING and you COULD NOT tell the difference with the G Free pasta. I'll admit it I was very nervous with the G Free pasta but honestly you can't tell the difference. Probably because its a casserole with sauce and cheese. This is 1 you really need to try you will be very pleasantly surprised :)
