Okay, I can?t let this super-easy family favorite stay a secret for much longer. Time to share a meal we eat every single week, without fail. The best part is that it?s gluten-free AND healthy!
All you need:
1 Bag of Brown Rice Pasta (I buy mine at Trader Joes. If you can?t find it at a local grocer, try a Whole Foods)
1 lb Extra Lean Ground Beef
2/3 Jar Marinara Sauce (I use this amazing one from Trader Joes)
2 Small Bell Peppers, sliced into strips
1/2 Onion, sliced into strips
- Cook brown rice pasta according to instructions. The gluten-free pasta cooks near the same as regular pasta, but can have a film on it. To get rid of that, and to make sure the cooking doesn?t continue after draining, I always rinse my pasta with cold water. Makes it perfect!
- While pasta is cooking, brown the extra lean ground beef. A couple minutes into cooking, add the sliced bell peppers and onions. Saute until peppers are soft and meat is cooked.
- Reduce heat to low. Add marinara sauce to beef, peppers and onions. Simmer until pasta is complete.
- Combine pasta and beef mixture.
- Makes 8 servings?Enjoy!

i don’t found this appealing . no fresh veggies or product ? why don’t you prioritize whole tomato or canned instead of process food ? …. not impress with the level of the “recipe” . no one know how to cook anymore ?
Did anybody ever get an answer to what the serving size is for this recipe?
Hi Allison: The recipe makes 8 servings, and the nutritional information is now in the post. ?
This would definitely be for a high carb day. And going by the portion size chart I believe it would be 1 cup of noodles (one fist of carbs) and 1/2 cup of meat with sause (palm size of protein) and add a salad to complete the meal.
I would like to know if this could be a carb cycling meal? High carb days? what’s a serving size? Thank you
Is this a meal for a high carb day? How much should you eat?
Currently eating this RIGHT NOW! So so yummy!! Thanks for the recipe (: I used extra lean ground turkey instead, not the biggest beef fan 😉 and still so good!!
It would be great if the recipes gave info relating to the carb cycling principles. We need a variety of recipes in order to sustain this lifestyle. HELP!!!!
What is a serving size for this dish? A cup?
I use ground turkey and mushrooms (I don’t like unions). Will using mushrooms and oregano spice make it not gluten free?
Your oregano spice could potentially contain a gluten-containing filler but otherwise it should still be gluten free! 🙂
