What Brand Of Pasta Do You All Buy?

Recommended Posts

Haha cannot believe I wrote "Wholecornsstore" LOL Thats funny!! I am sguessing itred tho and still have the "Brain fog" It "Whole Food Market?" I cannot even remember the name of the store LOL Any hoo I found 1 bag of the noodles I bought and it is made by : bionature : They are Rice , Potato and soy. I said I only found one of the bag , but I think I only bought one bag. I had two and only ended out buying one. Well maby I should go to bed now huh?

That could have been my error. From time to time, my tablet likes to jump all over the place and inserts letters and words. I am guessing it happened when I was typing "cornstarch" and my less than brilliant tablet added it to your blurb. Weird!

<p>Confirmed celiac disease February 2011 from biopsies. Strictly gluten free March 18 2011.Diagnosed with fibromyalgia April 13 2011.3 herniated discs, myofascial pain syndrome, IT band syndrome, 2 rotator cuff injuries - from an accident Dec. 07 - resulting in chronic pain ever since. Degenerative disc disease.Osteoarthritis in back and hips.Chronic insomnia mostly due to chronic pain.Aspartame free May 2011.

When our lives are squeezed by pressure and pain, what comes out is what is inside.

I really like GoGo Quinoa brand. It is a rice/quinoa combo pasta and it has a mouth feel and texture of wheat pasta. I belong to the ONFC and order it all from there as it is much cheaper than any grocery store or Walmart. 


All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

My daughter is vegetarian , ( not that , that makes a big dif in this thread) but she came to visit and I was telling her that I had bought some gluten-free pasta. She said the rice ones were really good. I know I have had rice noodles b4 and like them.

I like Tinkyada. I have found. depending on the shape, I may cook it longer and or rinse it after cooking.

I'm very happy for this thread! I'm new and I just made spaghetti last night with De Boles rice spaghetti. OMG it was NASTY. Weird tasting and like a thick glutinous sludge in my mouth. BLEAH. 

Sorry I have nothing to contribute as I'm still experimenting, but thank you all!

Ty because I just made something with De Boles, I ate it but didn't like it!!! 1st the water was super thick as it was boiling, would of been good for gravy!! They package said do not over boil so I boiled it 3 minutes less than they said ... It sucked up all the gravy I had and it was a big pile of mush!! Yuk!!! I will cook the rest up for the cats or something I am not sure!! Good thing I didn't try it on hubbs 1st! I just bought what they had at the store!! I guess I'd better buy some on line. pftttt!! Well I love to order on line!! :) I will go for the Tink next time!! :)

You are correct on every point you made.  Gluten free pasta will never be the same as we remember....it's a different animal.  I use it for spaghetti and it may last one day, as left overs, with the sauce combined.  It does suck up liquids and leftovers are not too good.

 

Over cooking gluten free pasta is not too good.  You have to experiment and try different brands.  I do like Sam Mills (found at my local Food Lion) and I can't wait to order some Depuma's Gluten Free Fresh Raviolli.

 

 Maybe someday it will be the pasta of the past. :)

I am not a big fan of pasta anyway or bread!! hahaha must be my body knew i was allergic :) Not really I was forced to eat Biscuits and Gravy as a child and sense then I have never been a big fan of Bread!! Specially wet bread!! noodles I am not a big fan of because Hubbs loves them and eats them at just about every meal!! I get sick of them! So when I am in the mood, they'd better be good!!

I've had good luck with the rice & corn pasta at Target. It's the store brand, Archer Farms, & it's made in Italy.  I've tried several rice-only brands, & they seemed really starchy. One brand turned the cooking water gelatinous.  However, Target has no dedicated gluten-free section (in spite of my FB posts...lol) so you'll have to look for it in the pasta section.

 

 

After seeing your post, I bought some of the Archer Farms Fusili last night - WOW. I am hooked! Thank you, bc if not for your post I never would have tried it!

We like Tinkyada. I boil it in a *lot* of salted boiling water, and only until slightly undercooked.

I always know it's done when all the starch rises to the top.

 

A suggestion, no matter what kind of pasta you're using: undercook it a little (al dente), rinse it it cold water, then put it in with whatever sauce or such your having it with and let it heat back up in it. That seems to help get the starch off and it holds together a bit better.

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

Another fan of the Ancient Harvest corn/quinoa pasta here. We have tried many, many gluten-free pastas & this one is GOOD.
