Spaghetti is on the menu tonight:) Unfortunately, they did not have any zucchini at the market today, so those are out as grain-free "noodles." Any other ideas for me? Was thinking of maybe sautéing some shredded cabbage to use as the base for spaghetti sauce, but I'm open to other ideas if you have any. Thanks!!

now grainfree, you should know to make this a request a recipe question :), anyways try using a sketti squash. great flavor. just cut that dog in half, scoop the seeds, then on moistened paper towels nuke 'em until you can use a fork and strand those goodies out. be careful they will be HOT! let 'em stand for a while. use oven mittens to turn them over. nuke meat side down.

we almost always use zucc and yellow squash mixed (with some pasta too). but you could use just yellow squash the same if you have it.

Not familiar with grain free diets, but would rice be an alternative? Whole brown rice would marry up very nicely, or you could segue to a jambalaya sort of thing..?

Rice From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search For other uses, see Rice (disambiguation). Oryza sativa, commonly known as Asian rice Rice is the seed of the monocot plants Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza glaberrima (African rice). As a cereal grain, it is the most important staple food for a large part of the world's human population, especially in Asia and the West Indies. It is the grain with the second-highest worldwide production, after maize (corn), according to data for 2010.[1]

Marcella Hazen (Italian chef and cookbook author) makes an egg frittata like a jelly roll, once rolled she slices it and serves a spicy tomato sauce over top. It's delicious!

I am gluten intolerant, so any time spaghetti is on the menu, I use brown rice. It does give a different flavor, but does not make me sick.

crazyliblady makes my point...its not really an allergy, but rather an "intolerance" that I suppose we all come to live with individually. So, yes, rice can be recognized as a "grain", as can oats, barley or corn, but not all of them will necessarily give you a problem. If Life kept me away from spaghetti and meatballs, penne and peppers and similar things I have come to love, you can just bet I'd be going over to the N'Orleans style dirty rice and/or jambalaya style replacements.
