Gluten Free Trinidad Spaghetti Pie
When it comes to traditional Sunday lunch in our house and probably lots of Trinidadian households there are some staples like Stewed Chicken, Callaloo and Macaroni Pie. Since switching to a gluten free diet, I’ve had to make some adjustments and one of the things we started making was a Gluten Free Spaghetti Pie instead of Macaroni Pie. Not quite the same but just as delicious and sure to please.
For those who don’t know, a Trinidad Macaroni Pie is similar to a macaroni and cheese casserole. Except we don’t use elbow macaroni, but a pasta similar to bucatini which is long like spaghetti but has a hole in the center.
Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to find gluten free bucatini, so that is how we decided to use spaghetti instead. However, if you’re looking for a more traditional Trinidad Macaroni Pie, you can check out this recipe where I use Gluten Free Penne Pasta.

How to make this Gluten Free Trinidad Spaghetti Pie
The great thing about this recipe is that everything is mixed in a large bowl or pot and then added to a baking dish and topped with cheese and baked to golden perfection. Making it a great side and it serves a crowd.
What to serve with this Gluten Free Spaghetti Pie
As I mentioned we have Sunday lunch traditions here in the Caribbean. We usually serve this with stewed chicken, some kind of peas like red beans or lentils, or callaloo. But sometimes we like to change up tradition and serve it with BBQ baked chicken like the one in my Trini Melee cookbook and sometimes we even do Shake and Bake chicken. The choice is all up to you!
I hope you enjoy the recipe and if you make it don’t forget to tag us on social and pin it on Pinterest.
