Lactose Free Recipes: Dairy-Free Saucy Pasta

By | December 7, 2015

Am a huge lover of pasta, especially the recipe am about to share with you. The recipe am about to share is a recipe passed down from generation to generation. It might look like a typical pasta recipe, but it has a lot of sentimental value. I had to tweak the recipe in order to make it lactose and dairy free, so that people like me would enjoy this saucy pasta like I would before. This recipe is definitely worth trying, as it is a personal favorite. pasta

 

Prep Time: 20 min                         Cook time: 40 min                     Serves: 6                      Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

  • 500g (1.1lb) penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 500g (1.1lb) chicken fillet, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt or per discretion.
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon green masala (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Aromat (seasoning mix)
  • 1 medium red pepper, finely  chopped
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1  tub coconut cream
  • 1 tub soy sour cream
  • 1  can cream style mushroom
  • 1 can cream style corn
  • Add grated lactose-free cheese (cheddar, mozzarella)

Method:

  1.  In a pot, at meduim to low heat add the olive oil followed by the onion. Braise the onion until it is soft. Please make sure the onion does not become brown.
  2.  Add the chicken and the spices: salt, the peppers and green masala (for those that love spicy food) and seasoning mix. Cook the chicken until it is well done.
  3. In a separate pot on meduim heat add two cups of water. As the bubble point is reached, add penne pasta. Add a teaspoon salt (for taste) and a teaspoon oil (so pasta does not stick to pot). Cook pasta until soft, immediately drain the water. Once the pasta is cooked, do not leave the pasta in the water as it will become too soggy.
  4. Add the peppers and pasta to the chicken. Leave to cook for 4 minutes.
  5. On low heat, add the cream style mushroom and corn. Cook for 4 minutes.
  6. Finally add the coconut cream and soy sour cream. Cook for two minutes.
  7. Remove from heat, let it cool down a bit. Now add the cheese.

I come from a generation of where ingredients are passed down and not the methodology. So the method has totally been at my own discretion. Please comment below if you have tried my recipe or if you have any comments or suggestions.

    I feel very fortunate to not suffer from lactose issues but I have known some in the past that have.
    I felt bad because of all the many dairy products they had to pass on.

    Thanks so much for this recipe suggestion I know just who to share it with.
    One thing I found curious was an ingredient of 1 teaspoon green masala (optional) you listed, I had never heard of that being used in Italian cooking before?
    Thanks again for helping a friend with dinner soon, my best,

      Hi CannaGary

      Yes, Green Masala is not associated with Italian Cooking, but I am of Indian descent – so we love our spicy food.

      Am glad I could be of assistance to your friend. Let me know what your friend thinks after trying out the recipe.

    Great-sounding recipe; thank you! I love the idea of using a bit of green masala. Sounds like it’d be tasty!

    Is coconut cream easy to find in grocery stores, or should I check out my local health food store?

      Hi Samantha

      Most likely in the health store. Let me know how the pasta was.

      Looking forward to your comments,

    I absolutely love this page. I’m not a brilliant cook so this is a massive help for me especially! Do you have other helpful recipes that would be helpful towards people that are lactose intolerant? I have a friend that is lactose intolerant so I’m interested to learn alot more about it!

    whoa! that’s a lot of ingredients for pasta. LOL i like making pasta with boiled noodles and the ragu in a can then just mix it up! Haha but this is so creative and it looks really good! I mean i would definitely eat this but i don’t know if I would be patient enough to actually cook it and what not. Thanks for the great recipe though! I actually try not to eat dairy anymore.. It’s not good for my acne so instead of drinking milk straight from the gallon I use almond milk instead! For my oat meal i used the almond milk annd it’s greaat!

      Hi

      I use to be like you, I would avoid recipes with a crazy amount of ingredients especially as a student. But over time I became passionate about cooking especially cooking lactose free recipes.

      Thanks for the comment,

      Regards

    I’m grateful to be able to digest pretty much anything that’s edible. I tried to go on a dairy-free diet once, just because somebody said dairy was bad for you, and I didn’t really miss it when I stopped eating it. There are lots of nice substitutes, like the almond milk Billy mentioned. But my body missed the probiotics in the yogurt I usually ate, so I went back to eating dairy, and it’s fine for me. But this recipe makes me want to try it. It looks delicious!

    Thank you very much for this pasta recipe! Actually i love pastas especially the creamy ones. But most of the time my stomach won’t take it because i am lactose intolerant. Good thing you have given a recipe that suits my taste buds really well as well as it don’t ruin my stomach. By the way is it okay to copy your recipe? I want to try it at home.

    Wow this actually looks really good! I’m not lactose intolerant but it’s definitely something I’d try! I think it’s great that you’d post your recipes for other’s like you so that they too can enjoy them . I’m fructose intolerant instead of lactose intolerant and I know how hard it is to find good recipes that don’t have anything that’ll bother you or affect you.

      Hi jCamden,

      Am sorry to hear about being fructose intolerant. Am not sure if this recipe contains any fructose (none that comes to my attention. Hopefully this recipe is fructose-free. Would love for you to enjoy it.

    Hi Uwais

    I am a huge fan of pasta recipes. Although I do not know much about lactose issues this recipe looks amazing. No wonder it was passed from one generation to the next.

    I like that you have added Green Masala, this is one of my all time favourite ingredients to spice up a meal. The aroma when cooking with it is unbelievable. Well done!

    Ethan
