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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
