Are sausages gluten free?

Not all sausages (in the UK) are gluten free – but luckily the majority of supermarket brands nowadays are!

Most sausages in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrison’s, M&S and Waitrose are all clearly labelled when they’re gluten free.

In fact it’s more common to see a gluten free sausage now than not!

I tend to find the premium ranges – like Taste the Difference or Finest – are nearly all labelled gluten free now.

And there are lots of gluten free brands of sausages too like The Black Farmer, Heck and Jolly Hog.

You may find some cheaper or branded sausages still contain gluten so always make sure to double check the ingredients and for any ‘may contains’.


Ingredients and Substitutions

There’s a full, printable recipe card below with the quantities and method, but here’s the main ingredients and ideas for substitutions:

Gluten Free Pasta: Any shape or brand of gluten free pasta works in this recipe, it’s completely up to you! I tend to use the Sainsbury’s gluten free pasta because it’s the store closest to me and also (currently) the cheapest. Most of the supermarket pastas are pretty good or you can pay a little extra for brands like Napolina which are fab!

Gluten Free Sausages: As discussed above, most sausages are gluten free but it’s always important to check. I tend to use either a Lincolnshire sausage or just a ‘normal’ sausage variation, but feel free to mix up the flavours.

Yellow Pepper: The veg in this dish can be so versatile! I used a yellow pepper because I thought the colour worked best(!) but any variety would work. You could also use jarred peppers or switch these for halved cherry tomatoes.

Red Onion: A white onion or shallots would work but red onions are always my fave.

Sundried Tomato Paste: I use this a lot in cooking and I find it with the pestos and pasta sauces in Sainsbury’s. If you can’t find it, a red pesto would also work well.

Chilli Flakes: Feel free to omit these if you don’t like the spice. For me it just completely lifts the sauce without blowing your head off.

Vegetable bouillon: I use this in a lot of my recipes as I find it easier when you’d traditionally only need half or a quarter of a stock cube. You can use 1/4 of a vegetable stock cube instead, just make sure it’s gluten free.

Low fat cream cheese: This is what makes this sauce so creamy. You can use full-fat if you prefer or even mascarpone or crème fraîche.


My Creamy Sausage Pasta recipe

This recipe makes enough for two large portions, or you could stretch the sauce with a little extra of the pasta water to make it serve four smaller portions.

You can also add extra veg if you want to bulk it out – try adding peas, chopped (cooked) broccoli or spinach into the sauce!

Creamy Sausage Pasta (Gluten Free)

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

This quick and easy pasta dish is a great midweek meal when you're in a hurry. Sausage chunks in a creamy, spicy pasta sauce.


  • 300g gluten free pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 gluten free sausages
  • 1 yellow pepper (diced)
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp vegetable bouillon
  • 125g low fat cream cheese


  1. Cook the pasta as per the pack instructions while you make the sauce. I always recommend bringing the water to a rolling boil before adding the pasta, and drain it as soon as it's cooked to avoid a gloopy mess!
  2. Roughly chop the sausages into chunks. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat then add the sausage chunks. Fry for around 5 minutes until browned on all sides.
  3. Add the peppers, red onion and garlic and continue to fry until the vegetables start to soften. Turn the heat down to low.
  4. Add the garlic, sun-dried tomato paste, chilli flakes, bouillon and cream cheese and stir well. Once the pasta has cooked, drain it, but reserve 100ml of the pasta cooking water and add to the sauce. Stir well and bring to a simmer.
  5. Cook for a minute or two so it starts to thicken then add the drained pasta. Mix well and serve straight away - I like to add lashings of cheese on top!
