My 3 Favorite Gluten Free Pasta Choices

Going gluten-free doesn't mean giving up pasta.

Actually, I pair it with a handful of veggies once or twice a week for dinner. There's nothing better than fresh garden tomatoes sauteed with a little garlic, onions, peppers and extra virgin olive oil over some soft penne, right?

So, when I go to the grocery store, there are three brands of gluten free pasta that are allowed to land in my shopping cart.

Isn't all Gluten-free pasta the same? No!

Why only three? Because the rest that I have tried are disgusting.

They turn to mush when boiled, fall apart when baked or don't reheat well. And we all know I like to cook in big batches to have leftovers. If my pasta turns into paste when I warm up the leftovers, I'm not a happy girl.

My Three Favorite Gluten-Free Pasta Brands

So if you're going to make gluten-free lasagna, reach for Tinkyada Brown Rice Lasagne. It's made from brown rice.

When you're craving penne, elbow macaroni or spaghetti, my two go-to brands are Ronzoni and Barilla. I have a box of Ronzoni Elbows Pasta or Barilla Penne Pasta in the pantry at all times for quick meal prep.

Barilla's gluten-free noodles are made from a combination of corn and rice. Ronzoni's gluten-free noodles are a blend of four grains: quinoa, corn, white rice and brown rice.

I've made countless meals with these three gluten free pastas, and have never been disappointed. They get tender without falling apart, keep their form better than other gluten free pastas when reheated (especially the lasagna), don't have a gritty texture and taste great!

What's your favorite gluten-free pasta? I'd love to find a fantastic gluten-free cheese tortellini.
