These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!

Monday's "Hearty" Pasta
This evening I put together a quick, beautiful and tasty pasta dinner in under 30 minutes. A couple of months ago I picked up a bag of gourmet multi-colored heart shaped imported Italian pasta at Fresh Market in Atlanta. I've been wanting to try it, but didn't want to make a sauce that the little hearts would get lost in. So...I diced a boneless Perdue chicken breast and sauteed it in a little olive oil, then poured about 1/2 of a jar of DelGrosso Vodka sauce over the chicken and let it simmer about 20 minutes while the pasta cooked and I made a salad. I made a chopped side salad and heated up some leftover Easy Cheesy Bread from Saturday night's dinner. I was careful not to overcook the pasta so the cute little hearts wouldn't break. I mean seriously...nobody wants to HAVE a broken heart, much less eat one! ;-) I served the meal on rectangular plates that really accentuated the different shapes and colors...it was a simple and delicious meal. Check out the pic below. Enjoy!
