Make Pantry Pasta Gluten Free for a Healthy Version

This gluten free dump meal recipe is a simple meal to make without the wheat – just use a pasta that is certified gluten free. I’m all about making recipes gluten free when I can. Gluten free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around gluten free pantry staples and swapping in a few wheat-less ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meals for everyone at your table.

Instant Pot Vegetarian Dump Recipes for the Win!

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

How Do I Make This Pantry Pasta Recipe In the Instant Pot?

  1. Add all the ingredients to the Instant Pot.  Make sure to stir well.
  2. Set Instant Pot to Pressure Cook for 5 minutes. Once finished, quick release the pressure, taking care not to have your hands or face near the steam vent.
  3. Once float valve has lowered, carefully open the lid. Stir the pasta well to combine all ingredients and allow to sit with the Instant Pot off for 5 minutes for pasta to soak up the last of the sauce before serving.  Mangia!

Notes

this recipe does call for Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP!) which a great shelf-stable plant-based protein. I realize not many people would typically have this in their pantry so you can totally use cooked ground beef or ground turkey if you aren't vegetarian or vegan.    Just make sure to brown the meat first, and then add it in with the rest of the ingredients.  But if you haven't tried TVP, I'd recommend grabbing a bag to try it out - it's a great substitute for meat that everyone will love.
