What’s Cooking Wednesday

Wow, has it been a hectic week! If you don’t follow me on instagram (mrszblog), I adopted another puppy! I know, I’m a crazy person. I am planning a full puppy detail post for later this week, so follow me in order to get the inside puppy scoop!

Today’s meal was determined by my need for comfort. I have been battling a cold/ allergies for 2 weeks now, and I am DRAINED. Yesterday, I took a 3 hour nap, and still went to bed before 11 o’clock last night, not a normal Sam thing to do. But it was a much needed time of restoration, and I feel so much better today.

So today, I wanted spaghetti! Working at an authentic Italian restaurant while being gluten intolerant is torture. All of the pizza and pasta smell and look delicious, so today I needed my Italian fix. This spaghetti was nothing fancy, no homemade sauce or meatballs, but it is a great gluten free alternative for those of us who love pasta! I basically follow the directions on the packaging, while adding my own flavor into the mix.

Having a gluten free dietary restriction does not mean that you have to give up on the foods you love. I have spent the last 2 years testing products and today’s spaghetti highlights a few of my favorite pantry necessities.


Easy GF Spaghetti & Meatballs


  • Ancient Harvest Spaghetti
  • Classico Traditional Pasta Sauce
  • Mama Lucia Italian Style Meatballs
  • Rosemary
  • Tony’s More Spice  Seasoning
  • Morton’s Nature’s Seasoning

The pasta:

  1. Fill your favorite large pot halfway with water and bring to a boil (I love my copper chef pots and pans!)
  2. Once boiling, add the whole box of gf spaghetti noodles- broken in half. You can choose to cook half, but I wanted leftovers for lunch for the remainder of the week.
  3. While the noodles are cooking, pour sauce into a medium sauce pan
  4. I choose to doctor up my sauce to add the flavors I like- today I chose Nature’s Seasoning, Tony’s More Spice, and rosemary
  5. Next, add your frozen gf meatballs to the sauce and allow the meatballs to heat (on low/ medium heat, your meatballs should be heated in the same time as your noodles)
  6. Once everything is cooked, drain your noodles and replace into the pot, mixing in your sauce and meatballs
  7. *optional* top with an excessive amount of parmesan, like I did, as well as Texas Pete for some added heat
