Gluten-Free Pasta Al Forno, is an Italian dish that has it all. Veggies, meat, cheese and pasta. This robust gluten-free pasta meal is not your typical all in one-pot pasta dinner. In this pasta recipe, the meaty sauce with veggies called ragu is simmered until the sauce is rich and flavourful.

Then, partially cooked pasta and peas are mixed with the sauce and layered with cheese. Finishing with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. The pasta is now baked, meaning Al Forno, until the topping is crisp.

the key to best Pasta Al Forno,

We all love one-pot pasta dinners because they are so easy. However, if you want something extra special, this Gluten-Free Pasta Al Forno is the dish for you.

The ragu is thick and rich, adding so much flavour to the pasta. The secret to this gluten-free Italian dish is partially pre-cooking the pasta before adding it to the sauce.

This is the key to keeping the ragu extra flavourful because the pasta doesn’t absorb all of the sauce.

This gluten-free pasta meal is made simply, but it takes a little extra time to cook than your typical one-pot pasta bake. This dish is made in three steps.

First, the rich meat and vegetable sauce called ragu is slowly simmered for extra flavour. Then, the pasta is partially pre-cooked before it is mixed with the sauce.

And lastly, everything is layered with cheese and baked. The Pasta Al Forno is not complicated, but it takes extra time to cook – trust me on this, well worth the wait!
