I also use the Tinkyada Elbows. The trick to them not getting mushy is to undercook the pasta before combining with the sauce and baking.

We boil for eight minutes and bake for 25.

The bag is a dirty liar.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

This ^.
Try presoaking the rice pasta in cold water, drain, then boil for a much shorter period of time.

My fiance' (that is not very supportive of gluten free cooking) keeps whining that i will mess up his favorite dish,


<_< :angry: :blink: :huh:

He needs to SUAMHOP. Hand him the bag of noodles, smile, and point to the refrigerator as you head out the door for a pedicure or something.

Easiest thing to do is take the supposedly too mushy leftover cooked rice pasta, salt it, maybe olive oil it a little, and melt some good quality, freshly shredded cheese over it in the microwave = mac 'n cheese. I did not invent this, my spouse did. Or make a brown butter sauce for it with mizithra cheese grated over it. (melt butter with garlic, maybe some chopped nuts, and pour over pasta, add cheese).

If he's going to act like a child, then make him cook his own dish. It wouldn't kill him.

Patee, to answer your question I melt the butter in a pan and pour it all over the noodles in the
9*13 and then stir it around.

Makes perfect sense.

Shar pasta is really good. combination of corn and rice. It's not so delicate that it overcooks easily. gluten-free family likes it too
