The “Super Bowl” is coming up soon, not to mention the remaining playoffs to get there. So “Super Bowl Parties” can be tough on people needing to be “Gluten-Free” in their diet. So this week I have a couple of recipes to help that out.
The first for Wednesday can be used as a dip or spread. “Bleu Cheese Dip/Spread” works well with GF crackers, GF pretzels and GF Corn Tortillas, as well as various vegetables. But it also works as a spread for sandwiches.
Thursday I have a somewhat traditional Tex-Mex dish for you to try at your party. It’s a “7-Layer Tex-Mex Dip” that you can always teak to your personal tastes. This recipe comes with little heat so if you want, crank it up. I’d finely dice some jalapeno or serrano peppers and mix them into the bean dip. But you spice it up anyway you like.
As we have been traveling of late, I have found a few more brands of pasta that is “Gluten-Free” and tasty too. “RP’s Pasta Company” out of Madison, Wisconsin makes some fresh GF pasta. We tried the GF Fettuccine and found it one of the best GF pastas we have tasted. I recommend that you eat all you cook as it doesn’t seem to be quite as good as a leftover. We found it at “Woodman's” grocery store in Wisconsin. Hy-Vee stores in Rochester, MN sell their product too. They do have a website at www.rpspasta.com you can check out.
We also tried a couple of frozen products by “Conte’s Pasta Co. Inc.” out of Vineland, New Jersey. The two products we tried were their “GF Potato Gnocchi” and “GF Cheese Ravioli.” We loved the gnocchi but were not real crazy for the ravioli. But everyone has their own tastes. Their website is www.contespasta.com.
I hope you try and like this week’s recipes. Also be sure to try the pastas mentioned if you can get ahold of them. Again, please share this post with family or friends that need to watch out for Gluten in their diets. Also to anyone who likes to cook or needs help cooking.
Thanks you and “Happy Cooking” until next week.
