Mrs. Leeper's/ Corn Rotelli

Recommended Posts

I have eaten it when I first was diagnosed. I'm not going to lie to you--it's not very good, especially when you compare it to Tinkyada. However, it's alright if there's nothing else available (and there wasn't for me when I was first diagnosed), but it does not heat up very well or hold up very well. If you can find Tinkyada, I highly recommend that instead.

Tinkyada is rice, but don't judge till you try it! I made baked mac and cheese with it the other night and it was excellent! I really couldn't tell the difference between that and glutened pasta.

I made spaghetti with another brand and it wasn't so good... :P

I eat the Mrs. Leepers rice pasta. I have tried the spaghetti and the shapes. I may not have cooked the shapes enough, but the spaghetti was good. My gluten eating husband ate the spaghetti just like normal, he had no idea. I have never seen Tinkyada in my area.

MMMmmmmm, Mrs Leeper's corn rotelli is my favorite! To cook it, bring your water to a boil, add the rotelli, then cook for 6 minutes. Drain it immediately. If you cook it longer, or let it sit in the hot water, it becomes mushy and tasteless. Only cook what you will eat at that time, as it does not reheat well for leftovers.

I am not crazy about the Mrs. Leepers pastas... but we LOVE Tinkyada around here. I get the brown rice pasta with rice bran, it's got a really great taste and texture and my gluten eating hubby loves it... says it's better than wheat pasta...

plantime I followed your directions & cooked the noodles 6 min thanks for the advice if I would have followed the directions they would have been mushy. My family loved them they smelled just like egg noodles. We usually have egg noodles with chili., but these were just as good kids loved them, husband also said they were pretty good. thanks again

I love thier Tuna "helper" and the chicken one, though I just add tuna, chicken is too much work. Its a great one dish meal on those lazy nights. My non-gluten-free boyfriend loves it too.

You're welcome. Glad I could help. I love mac and cheese, and will put tuna in my pasta any time! I will have look for the helper meals from Mrs. Leeper's. So far, I can only find the pasta.

Corn pastas are what I tried first...... I must say, I thought it was yucky! (no offense)

Tinkyada tastes very similar to "regular" pasta-and I am a picky gluten free person.

I bought both the Mrs. Leepers tuna helper and the chicken alfredo. It was not until I got them home I saw that the tuna product was had corn pasta in it, the chicken alfredo has rice pasta. We had the chicken dish at a support group which is why we looked for it as we really enjoyed it. But I wasn't impressed with the tuna dish so I think I just don't care for corn pasta...except for Maggianno's but that's imported from Italy after all. Tonight we'll be making the chk. alfreado so hopefully it will be as good as what we ate at our meeting.
