Gluten Free Italian Sausage Pasta Casserole

I needed to do a review for Schar’s pasta for my gluten free gift baskets website and decided to create a new gluten free pasta casserole recipe just for the occasion! What’s more Italian than pasta and Italian sausage ? My husband and I not only enjoyed the dish, but Schar’s tagliatele pasta, as well. The pasta contains mainly corn and tastes much like regular, glutenous egg noodle pasta.  It was a real treat!  If you do not eat corn, then by all means use a gluten-free brown rice pasta. Jovial and Tinkyada are the best I’ve ever eaten!

Gluten Free Italian Sausage Pasta Casserole

One of my favorite, most flavorful gluten free pasta casserole recipes!


  • 3 gluten-free mild Italian sausages (Brands: Johnsonville, NY Style)
  • Filtered water, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 1/8 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 1/8 cup yellow onion, chopped
  • Handful of fresh basil, chopped; or 2" basil paste
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 6 oz. gluten-free pasta (I used Schar's tagliatele)


  1. With a sharp knife, poke about 4-5 holes on each side of each sausage and place in a frying pan.
  2. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan.
  3. Place on stove and heat on medium high to high; cook until water is evaporated.
  4. Turn heat down to medium to medium high and fry until nice and brown on all sides, about 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
  6. Drain grease from pan.
  7. Reheat pan and add onion and bell peppers; saute until tender. If using, add in basil and cook additional 2 minutes.
  8. While vegetables are cooking, slice sausages; then add to the pan once vegetables are tender.
  9. Add in either gluten-free chicken broth, white wine or champagne. I used champagne. Stir until broth/wine/champagne emerges with other flavors.
  10. Add olive oil to cooked pasta and toss.
  11. Top pasta with sausage mixture. Toss before serving or serve each plate individually with sausage atop pasta.
  12. To Reheat
  13. Coat a non-stick frying pan with a little olive oil. Preheat and add left over casserole. Add about 1/4 cup or so of broth, wine or champagne; stir, cover, allow to steam, and stir occasionally until warm through.

  1. Excellent Dish! I made this last night while contemplating what to do with some spicy northlander sausages I had thawed in the fridge. I used green peppers and more onion, some garlic and pepper too. I topped the hot mixture with parmesan cheese at the end – delicious! Quick and easy to boot.
