Gluten-Free Penne With Chicken in a Sweet and Savory Rosé Sauce

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Barilla Canada. As always, opinions are all mine.

Today is our last post for this week’s Gluten-Free challenge with Barilla; I am sad to say. We enjoyed getting creative with recipes this week and learning more about celiac disease. I am impressed with Barilla Gluten-Free Pasta. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I had tried other Gluten-Free products in the past and wasn’t impressed. Thankfully, Barilla makes it easy and delicious to enjoy.

Today for my last post I am sharing this delicious Gluten-Free Penne with Chicken in a Sweet and Savory rosé sauce. This has been one of my all-time favorite meals since I was pregnant with Jackson back in 2011. My husband would bring it home from work all the time for me, and it was so good, I was thrilled when he recreated it for us, and we couldn’t wait to make it one of our meal plan meals. Of course, we had never used Gluten-Free pasta before with this dish, but we have now, and it’s AMAZING.


  • 1 box Barilla Gluten Free Pasta cooked al dente
  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces.
  • 1 1/2 cans spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/3 cups table cream
  • 3 tbs white sugar
  • 3 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 yellow or orange pepper medium chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated parmasean cheese


  1. In a large pot boil pasta, strain and set aside
  2. Cook chicken fully adding the chopped pepper about five mins before done.
  3. In another pot, combine sauce, sugar, garlic and cream and bring to a soft boil.
  4. Turn down heat to low and let dinner for 15 mins stirring occasionally.
  5. In a large serving bowl, combine pasta and chicken.
  6. Stir in sauce and Parmesan cheese and mix well.
  7. Bon appetite!!

Sometimes our kids can be picky about pasta, but they love this one. It’s very rare that all 7 of our kids (even Hanna!) will eat the same pasta. Jordan, my oldest is so picky, he often doesn’t like many pasta dishes beyond two timing pasta. This one, however, he raved about and enjoyed with us.

When someone is diagnosed with the disease, it can be difficult for families to find gluten free options that everyone can enjoy. The perfect blend of rice and corn flours makes Barilla Gluten-Free nourishing and delicious. You’ll never have to compromise on taste or texture, and you can easily adapt your favorite recipes to make the transition easier.

This past week I’ve learned that being Gluten-Free doesn’t mean we are stuck with gross foods or the family has even to know they are eating Gluten-Free. Every single pasta dish we had, you couldn’t even tell that you were eating Gluten-Free. No compromise on taste with Barilla.

I also learned this week that more than 330,000 Canadians (about 1 in 100) are affected by Celiac disease. This is a huge number. I had no idea so many people were affected, and I had no idea that others had no idea too. I got many comments and people telling me that they had no idea so many people dealt with the disease. It’s eye opening.

If you are Gluten-Free and don’t want to compromise on flavor, texture or recipes – Try Barilla Gluten-Free Pasta and make all your favorite Gluten-Free dishes.
