Barilla Spaghetti - Good!i Have

Recommended Posts

I have recently had occasion to try Barilla gluten-free Spaghetti and using it both as first day and warm up recipes I am surprisingly surprised.  Barilla isn't as "out there" as other gluten-free products, but it should be.  I got my local small market to order it and have used it three times.  First time, boiled to al dente and rinsed and then covered with my meat/tomato sauce.  What was exciting, was that refrigerating leftovers, yielded a nice warmed up spaghetti and sauce that actually tasted better after doing the refrigerating and reheat.

Next time around, I would follow the same procedure, refrigerate leftovers ...but I would add some fresh, or recently defrosted meat sauce to the mix. A stronger flavored sauce would be a wonderful improvement when reheating the spaghetti.  I honestly don't know how this spaghetti would fare in a cold salad, etc., but it holds its own when mixed with a flavorful sauce.Barilla makes a couple of other shapes that I haven't tried yet, but I highly recommended Barilla.

Yes its very good!  I had to order mine online and it was worth the wait.  One thing I have noticed with gluten-free spaghetti is that when it is cooked you have to be careful adding the sauce into it as it can easily break up, which I am not too keen on.

Here is what I did with my Barilla spaghetti.  I heated the sauce separately and set it aside.  I cooked the spaghetti (lots of water and salt and lots of stirring the first couple of minutes) and when it was al dente, I drained it and then dumped it into a bowl of cool water while I finished prepping.  Took a a non-stick frying pan, melted a little butter and olive oil and when the oil was hot, I strained the spaghetti and added it to the frying pan, stirring  it gently to get it hot and then I added the sauce  and kept stirring until everything was hot.  The spaghetti turned out great and what I was most pleased about was that when I heated up the leftover spaghetti mixed with sauce the next day (back to the frying pan)  the consistency was still good. I think Barilla makes two other pasta shapes, but I haven't found them yet.

Hi, maybe putting it in cold water and then directly into a pan is the key! I will try that.   Part of the fun of spaghetti is the long strands after all! Gracias.

I just bought some Barilla spaghetti the other day; now I cannot wait to try it.  I haven't found the noodles though.  Might have to look online on Amazon or Walmart to see if they carry it.  I live in a small town so my local selection of gluten free is somewhat limited.

I couldn't find the others either, so I bought a (sample) three pack with Penne, Rotini, and Elbows from Amazon, but it is waaaayy too expensive.  I figured I would try them out and if I like them, I'll try to get  my local grocery to order them for me.  They did order the spaghetti when asked.  I hope you enjoy the Barilla.  Some people seem to like other brands better.  I'm always surprised at how different people really like something while others really don't.  Good luck.  I'll be waiting to see what you think.
