Craving Pasta--Help!

Recommended Posts

When I was first diagnosed (around 10 months ago) a friend recommended Le Venziene pasta as the best gluten-free pasta she'd tasted, and she was right. I had been eating it fairly regularly (1/week or every 2 weeks) and was fine. A few months ago, however, I started having severe stomach aches after eating it, that would last for hours. I tried taking breaks thinking I was eating too much, and even tried eating it plain, thinking it was my sauces, but no luck. I stopped eating the pasta and have been trying to find a suitable replacement (unsuccessfully I might add). Has anyone else had a similar experience with Le Venziene? Also, can anyone recommend a good gluten-free pasta? Thanks!

I've been eating Tinkyada pasta products for years and never had an issue. They make a number of shapes and styles, mostly based on brown rice, and several organic varieties.  My favorites are Spaghetti Style (brown rice, water), Spinach Spaghetti Style (brown rice, spinach powder, water), and Vegetable Spirals (brown rice, carrot powder, tomato powder, water).

I like Tinkyada, also. One thing to be aware of is that it doesn't save well. I made a super good pasta salad with the spirals, but next day it wasn't so good. Something happens to the texture. Just cook what you are going to eat.

tinkyada is what we eat - it's brown rice pasta - so, no corn or quinoa or funky ingredients i am sometimes bothered by.  or i will sub in maifun noodles for angel hair pasta <also made of rice + nothing else.

 

we had a ton of zucchini and yellow squash from the garden, so we made lasagne using sliced zucchini layered with the sauce, cheese, etc. - my husband LOVED it - and he usually hates veg-gies mixed into his 'other stuff' - sooooo simple, too.  we ate the leftovers over spaghetti and that was also delicious.

Thanks everyone! I loved Le Venziene bec. It has a great texture and doesn't get mushy/slimy like some others I've tried, but I haven't tried any of your suggestions in the past, so it looks like I'm in for some pasta tasting sessions. Thanks again!
