Creamy Gluten Free Pasta with Campbell's Stock First Cream Stock

This gluten free pasta recipe is simple to prepare because the time consuming part of making a cream sauce is already done.  When I was given a sample of Campbell's Stock First Cream Stock at the Blissdom Canada blogger's conference last month, I did the first thing I always do when confronted with a new product: I checked to see if it was gluten free.  And guess what?  It is!  Campbell's has made a point of specifically stating which of its products are gluten free by stating it in a small box directly on the package, and this product is no exception. 



I immediately started thinking up recipes, and decided on creating a delicious, creamy pasta that would be simple to prepare but taste like it took much, much more work.  I think I succeeded!

Creamy Sundried Tomato and Mushroom Gluten Free Pasta
Serves 4-6

Ingredients
 450grams gluten free pasta (a short pasta works better
 than a long one for this recipe)
1 tbsp. olive oil, or more if necessary
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, finely chopped
250g mushrooms, sliced
1 jar sundried tomatoes, drained (reserve oil)
1 box Campbell's Cream Stock
1 cup liquid (milk, white wine, or a combination)
1 handful basil, torn or chopped, or 1 tbsp. dried basil
Salt & Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Grated Parmesan, Romano, or Asiago for serving






Directions

1- Cook pasta according to package directions.

2- While pasta is cooking, heat garlic, onions, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes in olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Cook until mushrooms and onions have released their liquids and are soft, about 5-7 minutes.  If desired, use some of the oil from the sun dried tomatoes, or more olive oil if mixture begins to dry out. 

3- Add liquid by pouring in Cream Stock and either wine or milk to mixture.   Stir to combine with dry ingredients.  Cook over medium heat until mixture is heated through and just begins to bubble, and then reduce to a simmer.   Add basil, S & P and red pepper flakes, if using. 

4- When pasta is cooked, drain and toss with sauce.  Garnish with freshly grated cheese and serve immediately.

  1. The pasta looks great. I was not aware that Campbell's was making Gluten Free products, let alone a Gluten Free Cream stock. Good news!

  2. Thanks for the comment. I was happy to find out too! A lot of their soups are gluten free too. Makes life easier looking for the little "gluten free" box on the side of their products!
