Lazy Sunday Casserole [from Kayotic Kitchen]

Welcome to the first ever [and slightly late] Gluten-Free Friday!

Being the first post on this blog about gluten-free eating, I figured it would only be fitting to add two more firsts to this first:

First first: this is my first time cooking dinner in our new kitchen.  Frozen pizza doesn't count.

Second first: this is my first time cooking this recipe.  I have a really bad habit of trying new recipes when I invite people over for dinner, so I usually have no idea how bad, or good, the meal will turn out.  My motto has become, "there's always takeout."

When I found this recipe on Pinterest, my stomach instantly growled.  The pictures of this meal look delicious.  I took some of my own pictures just because, but seriously, nothing can compare to the original ones. 

This recipe is made with pretty simple ingredients - veggies, meat, chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, and italian spices.  No need to hunt for special gluten-free alternatives with any of the ingredients.  

[Note: All types of vinegar except malt vinegar are naturally gluten-free.]

Here's the link to the recipe:

Lazy Sunday Casserole (from Kayotic Kitchen)

Post-meal Assessment: 4 of 5 stars

Josh: 3.5 or 4.  He thinks it would go well if the sausage was cut smaller and served over rice. [My husband is pretty stingy about giving stars away, so I would just mentally add another star to everything he rates.]

Becky: 4.  She would have given it a 5 if there weren't any onions in it.

Me: 5.  I really liked the flavor of the balsamic vinegar cooked into the sausage and veggies. The bitter vinegar taste disappears, leaving a nummy balsamic flavor, which I am a huge fan of.

Dellie: 4.  She kept chewing on the carrot despite making numerous faces.

Head over and take a look at the recipe at Kayotic Kitchen, and give this meal a try!  It easily feeds four people, and can probably be stretched to more servings if served over rice.

Happy Friday everyone!

P.S. this meal pairs well with chocolate dipped ice cream bars for dessert :)
