Tinkyada Pasta

Recommended Posts

I bought the lasagna noodles a little while ago but haven't made any yet because I haven't eaten lasagna withOUT any cheese. Not sure how to do this - any ideas?

Just go with the noodles, sauce, meat, and spinach (yes I do both)?

If you have tried it this way, is it just too squishy?

Go to walmart, get the "real" thing. Kraft puts the "cheese" out in a shaker can. Its the same powder thats in thier mac and cheese boxes. Its gluten-free and many ppl here use it with great success. I have only seen it at Walmart, but you might see it at other grocery stores. It looks like a shaker for putting cheese on popcorn. Often found near the "shelf stable" cheeses.

you are so kidding me right?!

they just make the cheese where you can buy it?

omg, I feel stupid.... I heard that the Kraft cheese powder was gluten-free but then I was thinking about the CC issues since it's in the box with poison (gluten noodles) but you can just buy the cheese?!

thank you *goes to walmart to look for it*

Do you mean RISO pasta?

My husband went to an italian market last weekend and showed up with a bag of Riso Fettucinni. Man, was so expensive...I'm gonna try it this weekend with sundried tomato and basil pesto.

I worked in a restaurant a couple of years back, and OUR RISO pasta was simply pasta that was shaped more like rice....so PLEASE double check before you eat yours! I fear that you may accidentally get glutened! Let me know!

And hey....if it is indeed gluten free, let me know that, too, cuz I wanna get me some :)


dx by blood test and biopsy April 2006.

gluten free since, and avoiding dairy.

Pasta in the shape of rice is called "orzo". Maybe you got the two names mixed up? :)

I love Tinkyada pasta. :D

I was just curious though....does anyone know why when you cook the noodles the water turns sorta cloudy and even sorta thick sometimes? I wasnt a cook at all until I had to go on this diet and in "my previous life" (as I'm calling it now) I ate alot of mac & cheese from the box but the water never turned thick and white like this. Is it just me? :unsure:

Yep--it does make the water more cloudy than regular pasta! I think it's just the nature of rice pasta :blink:

my husband claims that it's more "starchy" and that's why the water is that way, he likes to rinse the noodles after he strains them

WOOO HOOO!!!! I found it. Cooked it tonight with Tinkyada elbow noodles and YUM!!!

Thanks. :D

Ty is the only gluten-free pasta eater at our house. He likes the Tinkyada "Little Dreams". Probably because he can spend the meal counting shooting stars, airplanes, rabbits, etc. and we have plain old noodles or spirals. No Wacky Mac anymore.

Yeah, I know it's usually called orzo, but where I worked, RISO was made from regular pasta. Just wanted tp be sure nobody gets glutened :)

Thanks to everyone who put in ther 2 cents worth!! We made it and the boys LOVED it -and asked for more!! That is all the proof we need!

I am also putting the Kraft cheese in a can on my list...the boys love Mac & cheese, but they just can't get into the Annie's...so we will give that a try...thanks for the ideas!!
