I could never go gluten free. I love pasta way too much. Last night, I made a big pot of meat sauce, half went into last night's and tonight's dinner. The rest was portioned up and frozen for future use. (And, I even remembered to label the containers this time!)
First, I use a pound of 80/20 ground beef and a pound of hot, Italian sausages (casing removed) and brown up the meats (separately, beef first). The juices/fat from the beef get added to the dog food for the week and the fat from the sausage is what I use to saute the veggies.
And, VOILA! Spaghetti!
