Creamy Beef Alfredo

This is a one-pot-wonder meal
It took less than 30 minutes to put together and it only dirtied one pan. beat the boxed version of the sodium filled hamburger helper hands down. 
(Giggles because they use that little glove man as their mascot. 
Oh, I crack myself up!)

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
15 oz Classico Creamy Alfredo Sauce
1 cup water
2 tablespoons ketchup
8 oz uncooked gluten free pasta
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet brown meat and onion.  Drain fat.  Add Alfredo sauce, water and ketchup and bring to a boil.  Stir in pasta.  Bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat.  Simmer for approximately 10 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.  Sprinkle with cheese. 

All of the Classico® red and white sauces are gluten-free

Gluten-free Green Bean Casserole

Yep, it can be done!  We used Funyuns instead of the traditional french fried onions.  And of course, gluten free cream of chicken soup.  We followed the same recipe and cooking times and it was yummy!

No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup margarine (I used only 1/2 cup butter)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups gluten free oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter

Grease a 9 inch baking pan.  Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add sugar, mix well.  Stir in oats.  Cook over low heat 2-3 minutes.  Press half of the mixture in the prepared pan. 

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave.  Stir in peanut butter and pour the mixture over the oats in the pan.  Spread evenly.  Crumble remaining oat mixture over the chocolate layer.  Cover and refrigerate 2 hrs over overnight to harden.
