Okay y’all, I need to ask you where summer has gone? I just realized school starts back up in two weeks.
Back to the hustle and bustle of busy weeks. Both kids are in high school and the homework loads are crazy high. Do your kids spend hours on homework too?
Well, you are in luck because this year I am going to get really organized with family dinners. Last year our family was lucky to be able to sit down together twice a week. I want to make the most of that family time by creating easy dinner recipes that are ready in under 30 minutes.
Don’t forget to check out the fun video that walks you through all of the steps to make this delicious gluten free garlic parmesan pasta recipe.
This pasta dish is so simple!!
The star of this easy gluten free pasta dinner recipe is this Mezzetta peperoncini. Believe it or not, this was the first time I ate pepperoncini. If you have been following my blog, you know I LOVE spicy. I am not sure why I haven’t tried one sooner.
These golden peperoncini make this pasta dish go from average to awesome! I can see this becoming one of our family go-to dinners!

This pasta is so easy to make!! My daughter makes a variation with a LOT of bacon. (It is pretty amazing so feel free to adapt your garlic fettuccine recipe to add bacon.)
What kind of pasta is best in this alfredo recipe?
I used a gluten free fettuccine made by Jovial for this recipe. You can really use any pasta you like. Trader Joe’s also carries a gluten free fresh pasta in their refrigerated section near the cheeses. (Just note the fresh pasta has a much shorter cook time than dry pasta!)
