The gluten free lifestyle has taken on a whole new world of it’s own and more and more gluten free pasta options are available now.
Several of my clients are gluten free because of medical conditions so I am constantly searching for products that will be an excellent replacement for our wheat based pasta varieties.
In this video, I go over the four different pastas I’m putting to the test and all of them were readily available in my local grocery store:
Here are the cooking times for each one as promised! Each pasta portion was measured 2/3 cup dry, 56 g by weight.
Barilla Chickpea Rotini: 7 min, yield 1 cup cooked, Barilla Red Lentil Rotini: 10 min, yield 1 cup, Ancient Grains POW Green Lentil Penne: 8 min, yield 3/4 cup, Ronzoni Gluten Free Penne: 8 min, yield 1 cup.
In this next video, I taste test each one after it was cooked, covered with 1/2 cup of pasta sauce, frozen, thawed and reheated….the results might surprise you!
