The Family Favorite, Pesto Pasta (gluten free/dairy free)

The Family Favorite, Pesto Pasta (gluten free/dairy free)

This pasta recipe has been fine tuned for about a year now and I have to say, after this weekend, I think we’ve reached perfection. It takes about 15 minutes to make and everyone always scrapes their bowls clean. Our 7 year old even loves eating it! Mom win!


For those who don’t know, I have a strong intolerance to dairy and gluten. So, when I can, I try to limit my intake of those two ingredients which is easier said than done. That’s why I love this recipe so much!! It’s gluten free and dairy free. (ps. it could very easily be vegan too if you omit the sausage).

If you’re looking for any other kid free recipes. Check this one out, it’s also bomb.

I’d love to know if you make it! Tag me on IG so I can see how it turned out for you.
