  • 4 cups gluten-free pasta short cut such as spirals or bow ties
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1 10-ounce can diced tomatoes and green chilies (such as Rotel), undrained
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Combine the pasta, 1 teaspoon of salt, and water in a large skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until almost all of the water is gone and the pasta is tender.
  2. Add the evaporated milk and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Add the cheese and cook, stirring, until the cheese is melted. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
