Grain Free Pasta with Italian Sausage

27 Aug

Grain Free Flax Pasta



1 28 oz can tomato sauce

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes

1 tbsp fresh basil

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 tbsp olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

1 1/2 lb Italian sausage

1/4 cup grated parmigiano (yes. it goes INTO the sauce)


2 cups almond flour

1 cup arrowroot starch

1 cup ground golden flax

1/4 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

4 eggs

extra arrowroot for rolling


Sauce: Heat oil and brown sausage (you can remove casings or simply cut into meatball size pieces like I did. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for several hours. I like to start mine cooking before lunch.


In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Make a well in centre and add eggs. Beat eggs with a fork and gradually add in the dry ingredients. You will eventually want to use your hands to form a soft dough. Gently knead until smooth.

Dough can be rolled out, on a liberally dusted surface, to approximately 1/12th of an inch and cut into strips as for spaghetti, linguini, fettucine, ravioli or lasagne. The dough is a little more fragile than regular pasta dough. You will want to avoid rolling it out twice

Drop into boiling water and boil for barely one minute. Strain.

Serve: Top with the Sausage sauce and freshly grated parmigiano cheese

Serves 4-6 as an entree, 8 as a side dish

Grain Free Chocolate Almond Biscotti



This is a recipe that will be in my new cookbook. I hope to have it electronically published before the end of the month.


Chocolate Almond Biscotti

2 cups almond flour

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup dark cacao powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup steviva blend

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Place all ingredients into a bowl of a stand mixer. Mix until dough forms a ball. Form a log on a parchment lined baking sheet. Log should be about 1” high.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Cut into 1/2” slices and place cut sides up back onto lined baking sheet. Bake for another 20 minutes at 325, turning once halfway through.

Remove from oven. Allow to cool. You may want to dip into melted dark or white chocolate.

Makes 16-18 cookies
