Gluten-Free One Pot Creamy Tomato Pasta Bake made in under 30 minutes. The tomato sauce is extra creamy, flavoured with sundried tomatoes, oregano, basil, and garlic, and baked to perfection with extra cheese.

Easy Gluten-Free One Pot Creamy Tomato Pasta Bake

Gruyere and cream cheese are what made the sauce extra creamy. The pasta is tossed with the sauce and then topped with mozzarella cheese which gives this Italian meal that cheesy goey topping we love so much!

The result → baked pasta in the most flavourful creamy cheesy tomato sauce and melted mozzarella topping. For extra heartiness and flavour, the chorizo sausage. However, the chorizo is optional.

You will love the simplicity of this gluten-free one pot creamy tomato pasta bake. The best part, all you need is about 10 minutes of hands-on for this recipe.

The flavour is outstanding, and you only need one pot, like a large oven-proof skillet. If you don’t have one, don’t worry, use a baking pan. So easy!

Let’s jump into the details!

I can’t tell you enough how easy this recipe is! To make this pasta bake, you start by cooking the pasta. Then, add olive oil, garlic, and herbs using the same pot. Cook for a minute, then add everything else except the pasta and mozzarella.

Once the sauce starts to boil, stir in the cooked pasta and top with mozzarella cheese. Pop it in the oven, bake for about 10 minutes and then broil for 2 more minutes. That’s it, and you will have an amazing gluten-free Italian meal family-style.

Sounds easy? It is, the gluten-free pasta bake doesn’t get easier.

substitutions for pasta bake 

The wonderful thing about this gluten-free pasta bake recipe is its versatility. You can change the ingredients making this Italian dish your new signature gluten-free pasta meal.

First, for the pasta, I used fettucini. However, you can use spaghetti or short cut pasta such as gluten-free rotini, rigatoni or penne.

For the cheese, you can use any good melting cheese. The first one that comes to mind would be fontina cheese, but gouda, cheddar or Camembert all will work beautifully in this recipe.

I have also added chorizo sausage for extra flavour. But you can make it a vegetarian pasta dish by replacing the chorizo with mushrooms, zucchini or bell peppers.

Or, you can omit the veggies and chorizo sausage altogether. There is so much flavour in the sauce that you don’t need to add anything else.

  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Bring a large oven-proof skillet of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain the pasta.
  • While the pasta is draining, to the same skillet, add olive oil, garlic, basil, oregano, cayenne pepper and chorizo sausage, if using. Continually stirring cook over medium-low heat for one minute. Add tomato sauce, sundried tomatoes, cream, cream cheese and Gruyere cheese. Cook over medium-high heat until it starts to boil. About 3 - 5 minutes. Remove from the stove. Taste and season with sea salt if needed.
  • Gently stir in cooked pasta and scatter mozzarella cheese over top, bake for 10 minutes. Then turn the broiler on and bake until the cheese is golden and bubbly. About 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven and rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs.
  • Note: you will notice I did not add any salt to the sauce. The reason for this is the cheese, and the tomato sauce is already salted. I felt the sauce did not need any extra salt.
