In these recipes dry pasta simmers in the oven along with veggies and a sauce, leaving you with a perfectly seasoned meal. You can use either gluten-free and wheat-based pasta in these recipes; I like to use a chickpea-based pasta for an extra boost of plant protein.

  1. I am Celiac and T1, lactose intolerant and allergic to nuts. Any recipes for me? No pasta for me. Spike blood sugar.

    Thank you.

    1. Some general recommendations for gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and low-glycemic recipes. Here are a few ideas:

      Quinoa Salad: Prepare a delicious quinoa salad with mixed vegetables, herbs, and a light dressing. Quinoa is a gluten-free grain that is packed with nutrients.

      Baked Chicken or Fish: Opt for baked chicken or fish seasoned with herbs and spices for a flavorful and protein-rich main course. Serve it with a side of roasted or steamed vegetables.

      Lentil Soup: Make a hearty lentil soup using gluten-free ingredients, vegetables, and herbs. Lentils are a great source of protein and fiber.

      Veggie Stir-Fry: Stir-fry a variety of colorful vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and snap peas in a gluten-free soy sauce or tamari. Serve it with brown rice or quinoa.

      Cauliflower Rice Bowl: Replace traditional rice with cauliflower rice and top it with grilled chicken, roasted vegetables, and a dairy-free sauce or dressing.

      Remember to always check the ingredients and labels of any packaged products to ensure they are suitable for your dietary needs. Additionally, consulting with a registered dietitian or nutritionist can provide personalized guidance and help you create a meal plan that meets your specific dietary requirements.

  2. Hi Caitlin,

    My husband and I tried the Buffalo Cauliflower casserole and loved it. We used mild Buffalo sauce, and Brianna’s vegan ranch dressing. We are now trying the Spinach and Artichoke recipe. These recipes are so easy and have helped us tremendously since we both work full-time. We now have more time to do the things we like without trying to figure out what’s for supper or lunch.

    Thank you for sharing and keep them coming. 🙂

    1. We are delighted that you’re able to make fast and easy meals with the recipes and enjoying them with your husband, Cynthia!

    1. This sounds great! How can I make a larger quantity, say 1.5 – 2 times as much? Is it possible to make in a larger baking dish?

      1. Hi Viv, any of these recipes can be doubled and made in a larger dish, though you might have to increase cooking times slightly. I would start with he suggested cooking time in the recipe and continue checking in every 5-10 minutes until cooked through.

  3. I’m new to your dump casseroles. Love them! Do you think they can be made in th Instant Pot? I hate to use the oven in the summer,

  4. My family requests the Chorizo Roasted Tomato Pasta dump and bake recipe. I think I’ve made it five times since you have posted it! Thank you for such easy dinner meal ideas!
