This easy recipe for gluten free pasta taco bake is the perfect casserole for dinner! It's simple to make with ground beef, cheese and homemade taco seasoning. I made this cheesy dish in a skillet, but you could also use a baking dish. 



1 pound Ground Beef
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 tsp. Ground Coriander
1 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1 small Yellow Onion, chopped
15 ounce can Tomato Sauce
14.5 ounce can Diced Tomatoes
1/2 cup Water
1/2 cup Beef Broth
12 ounces Gluten Free Penne Pasta
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Using a cast iron skillet or frying pan cook your beef on medium heat until there is very little pink and then add the chopped onions, chili powder, garlic powder, coriander, cumin, paprika, sea salt and pepper. Cook until onions are translucent. 

Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, water, broth, pasta, sour cream and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Stir the mixture to combine.

If you are using a cast iron skillet top the mixture with the rest of your shredded cheese and it's ready to bake. If you are using a frying pan pour the mixture into a baking dish and then top with cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. The dish will be bubbly and the cheese will be melted when it's done.


If you don't have beef broth you can use whatever broth you have on hand or just use more water instead of broth.
