I've been sick from contamination so much that I'm extremely careful when I make my food. I have my own set of pots and pans that are only used for gluten-free food. My boyfriend will cook his meal and my son's meal on the stove once mine is finished. In the long run, it's not worth getting sick over cross contamination.
BTW, the best pasta is Tinkinyada (it's in a purple package) and is amazing! You can get it at any health food store and if there is a Wal-Mart or Meijer around you, they normally carry it along with their other gluten-free products.
Have you used this pan in the past for any food containing gluten? Believe it or not, I've gotten sick before from using a pan at my mom's house (even after scrubbing it with dawn and a scrubber) even though there was no gluten around my food that was in the pain.
Cross-contamination is so easy! Try to be careful out there
