Baking Tinkyada Pasta?
0

8 posts in this topic

Hello! This year will be my first gluten free Thanksgiving and I'm trying to get everything all planned out. I look forward to my mom's baked mac and cheese for 364 days every year so it's definitely a MUST. I love Tinkyada rice pasta for making spaghetti and was wondering it anyone knew how their elbows did with baking? Do they do well or get mushy or hard? If they don't do well, does anyone know of any brands that make elbows that do well in the oven? Thanks so much! : )

I use the Tink elbows for mac and cheese regularly. They do very well in the oven for me--I undercook the pasta a bit, and only bake until it is bubbly. I used to use the shells, but like the elbows better--they are a bit lighter and don't overwhelm the sauce.

I don't see why not.

I can't do that type of pasta (it sits like lead and doesn't taste very good to me) so i use ancient harvest quinoa. I know for a fact that this one can handle backing (because i've overcooked it on the stovetop before and it didn't affect it at all :blink: ).

I use Tinkyada elbows all the time for mac and cheese. Don't cook as long as the package says - I find 12 minutes is enough. The elbows stay soft in the sauce and even freeze well.

I don't actually cook my Tinkyada before using it in baking. What I do is pour hot water (not quite boiling) into the kitchen sink and soak my noodles for 10-20 minutes depending on which noodles I'm using. (10 mins for the little guys, and 20 for the lasagne noodles) Then they bake perfectly and aren't overcooked in the end.

Now that is an interesting way of handling noodles -- I'm going to try that next time!

Also energy- saving. Not a bad idea....

For baking in the oven, I preferred a corn and quinoa macaroni that I got from the health food store. We liked the taste better and it really holds up well. Alas, daughter is now intolerant to quinoa so... No go for that. I don't know that I have actually seen any macaroni in the Tinkyada. I have used their lasagna though and maybe I cooked it too long but it did tend to get a bit mushy in the oven.

    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
