When it comes to feeding my family of six, I sometimes find it challenging to keep everyone happy and well-fed—even when we’re not under quarantine. Add in a month of non-stop cooking and a limited grocery supply and suddenly I’m out of meal ideas. I need something easy to make and delicious, stat.
Enter my Italian sausage with gluten-free pasta and peas. It’s a quick and easy meal that’s nutritious and pretty yummy too. Not to mention it’s a hit with the kids. And when I come across a recipe that is winning in my house, I want to make sure it makes it to your kitchen too.
To make this dish I use my favorite cookware, Scanpan, an exceptional line of nonstick pans that are safe and effective. I have always been a fan of the way the food slides off easily, and it’s great to use less oil for healthier meals. Through the years I have learned that some nonstick pans can be dangerous when they are heated, that’s why it is crucial for me to choose a brand that is safe, with a nonstick effect and easy-to-clean surface.
Oh, and my Italian sausage with gluten-free pasta and peas dish came out perfect!
The sulfur compounds and vitamins in garlic help prevent and reduce the severity of common illnesses like the flu and common cold.
Gather All Your Ingredients
- 1 pound of your favorite gluten-free pasta
- A handful of fresh garlic chopped
- 1 pound of pork sausage (or substitute with the meat of your choice) broken into small bits
- 1 cup of diced tomatoes
- Locatelli grated cheese
- Romaine lettuce
- 1-2 Shallots
- 1 box of mushrooms

Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer.
Cook Up an Easy Dinner Recipe
- Start by cooking the pasta until it’s al dente but not too soft.
- Chop the shallot, slice the mushrooms and chop the garlic, then cook all of them in your frying pan for about five minutes with just a dash of olive oil.
- Next, add the sausage and cook for five minutes. These should be in small pieces but make sure they are thoroughly cooked.
- Then add the tomatoes and simmer for an additional six to eight minutes.
- After, add the cooked pasta and peas and stir for three minutes or so until everything feels well combined.
- Prepare romaine lettuce with Locatelli cheese and toss with your favorite dressing.
Mushrooms are a great source of antioxidants which help protect the body from damaging free radicals that can cause conditions like heart disease and cancer.

I can finally focus on delectable, easy-to-make meals, like this one.
