What is your favorite food? Anyone close to me could easily tell you my favorite food is pasta. Hence why I pulled this recipe together for you… and me to enjoy. When I started pulling foods from my diet to see how I would feel being dairy free, gluten free and even meat free I had no idea that the kitchen would become more of a friend than ever before.
I really enjoy eating this way. Cutting dairy has helped with my IBS & digestion in general. With that being said I didn’t think I could ever have delicious creamy meals without dairy. Man was I wrong! I whipped up a flavorful and creamy rosé tomato and garlic pasta for you. It has only a few ingredients and is super easy to make.
If you are wondering where I found this wondrous blend of cashew and almond milk from So Delicious, Walmart! It’s in the cold section, not the aisle with the other non refrigerated almond & cashew milks. Snag this rebate on your So Delicious organic almond and cashew milk. I love it because it’s organic, non-GMO, soy-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. All my plant based, vegan, gluten free and dairy free foodies will appreciate that! Plus this milk is great for breakfast in shakes or with gluten free, dairy free cereal. (Yes we have cereal like that in our house.)
Can I lastly say my husband took a bite and said, “There is not way their isn’t dairy in here!” He thought for sure I had created a dairy filled vodka sauce! He always tells me when my recipes don’t taste exactly like it’s dairy version. “If you blindfold me and feed me this, I’d for sure say it’s a vodka sauce & made with dairy.” So I’m pumped about this guys, hubby approved!
- 1/2 cup So Delicious organic almond milk with cashews
- 24oz can/jar of organic tomato sauce

I hope you guys enjoy this creamy and delicious meal! This is the perfect meal for someone who is new to the dairy free and gluten free world or a veteran! Packed full of flavor and protein!

All linked meals are Gluten free and vegan friendly.
Eating a restricted diet can be challenging and boring if you don’t venture out and try new recipes or experiment in the kitchen. Out to eat is another story. It can be very isolating to eat out with such a strict diet. There are so many yummy things on the menu for the people you are with to chose from and you can’t even have the veggie burger on lettuce because they put bread crumbs in it. Have you been there? For me, this diet keeps my energy up, my anxiety down, my IBS at bay and my arthritis a thing of the past. So it’s worth the difficulties out to eat and at parties. This is why I create fun meals at home. I’m a foodie and want to experience delicious dishes full of flavor.
If you have been looking to try more gluten free or plant based meals you will LOVE these!
I pulled together a weeks worth of recipes. Many of which you will have leftovers for lunch the next day.
Side note: I’m not a big breakfast person (I typically make a shake or have a banana) but here are some ideas for those of you who are: a bowl of fresh fruit, frozen fruit and fresh spinach smoothie or gluten/dairy free bagel with avocado.
Have a blast cooking!
