Gluten Free Dairy Free One Pot Pasta and Kielbasa

So good and so easy! Sometimes the best recipes come from just tossing together what you have on hand. Yep, I could have added some green veggies to the dish, but we like this as it is. Just serve it with a big salad and you’ll be good to go.

I am also using this dish for Gluten Free-zer Friday, as the leftovers (it makes a BIG pan) can divided up and tucked into the freezer for future lunches.

The Recipe: One Pan Gluten Free Pasta and Kielbasa


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 smoked pork kielbasa or turkey/chicken kielbasa-style sausage, sliced 1/4" thick rounds
  • 1 1/2 cups diced onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups gluten free chicken broth
  • 1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 16 ounces uncooked gluten free elbow or shell pasta
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded dairy free cheddar cheese-style cheese substitute
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions or minced fresh parsley


  • Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions, kielbasa and garlic and cook it until translucent.
  • Add chicken broth, tomatoes, coconut milk, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer.
