Rice Pasta with Creamy Tomato Sauce - Gluten Free

I needed something quick and easy for dinner.  I didn't have much time so instant rice noodles were a great option because you just soak them in hot water for about 5 minutes and they are good to go.  This recipe is gluten free and cow's milk dairy free; however, it does contain goat's milk dairy.  If you need it to be completely dairy feel free to substitute the goat cheese with a dairy free cream cheese. 


Quick & Easy Rice Pasta with Creamy Tomato Sauce

1/2 package of Instant Rice Noodles
1 tbs olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce  (I used a mushroom garlic one)
pinch cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
4 oz soft goat cheese or dairy free cream cheese

Soak the instant rice noodles in very hot water until they are tender.
Meanwhile, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until tender.
Once the noodles are tender, drain them well.
Add the noodles and tomato sauce to the sauted onions.
Season with the cayenne, salt and pepper.
Cook for a minute or two longer until the noodles absorb most of the sauce.
Remove from the heat and stir in the goat cheese.
Serve immediately.
