Here you will find the best gluten free pasta brands because let’s face it, most Gluten Free Pasta just isn’t as tasty as normal wheat pasta. When you first go gluten free you may think that you just don’t like pasta that much anymore….
Don’t believe it!
The truth is a lot of gluten free pastas are almost impossible to cook al-dente and then suddenly they go to a mushy texture and they just can’t satisfy a true lover of pasta.
Before I went gluten free I used to love my pasta and then, after going gluten free I thought I’d gone off it, because all the brands I could buy were…hmmmm let’s just say not doing it for me.
And then I came across the good, no the great ones…
So if you’re new to this or if you’ve found that pasta isn’t quite so yummy anymore…read on….
YUMMY! PASTA’S BACK ON THE MENU!
Here they are: the Best Gluten Free Pasta Brands
Waitrose Love Life Spaghetti made from corn and rice flour.
And the twists for that pesto or pomodoro sauce!
Gluten Free Fusilli Waitrose Love Life 500g
Semper Gluten Free Pasta & Lasagne
Semper make delicious gluten free lasagne that bakes just like real wheat lasagne and keeps its bite. The linguine makes a nice change and tastes nice in a sauce but isn’t like ‘real’ pasta. It cooks a bit gluggy, like rice noodles tend to, so it’s better not eaten plain. This one’s made from brown rice flour.
Felicia Pasta Range
Felicia’s another make to look out for. Their pasta range is advertised as being made from corn but actually the ingredients are a blend of corn and rice flour and that’s what gives the advantage and the great pasta texture.
Edamme and Mung Bean Fettucine
This one needs a little introducing because it is completely not what it seems! Try this as something new and you’ll find it really interesting – try it to replace normal pasta and you’ll be in for a bit of a shock.
The nice thing is that this doesn’t overcook easily so it stays al dente for longer. The weird thing is its super chewy. A tiny amount can be chewed a million times (slight exaggeration!). And the thing you really have to look out for is that this is sooooo filling you only need to eat a tiny bit of this to feel stuffed. So try making different recipes with just a touch of this on the side and I think you’ll be pleased to have it in the cupboard. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s pasta.
I hope you enjoy these gluten free pasta brands and put the love back into pasta!
