Ok so it's almost been a week now that I've been on this new diet. I tried gluten free pasta tonight, I have to admit it wasn't awful but it was so super bland and it wasn't very flavorful even with the sauce on it (bland as well). What kinds of pasta do you guys eat and what sauce?

Also, the hard taco shells are they gluten free??? I really want to try a taco receipe that I found, but I don't want to get glutened!

Let me know, thoughts are appreciated.

God bless!

ortega hard taco shells say 'gluten free' right on the box, (handy for when i send the husband/kids to the store for taco shells lolz) but i have used different brands with no problem - make sure you read the box :)

tinkyada is 'the kind' pasta - we tried many other brands (mushy, grainy, etc) and that is the brand that is closest to 'regular' pasta.

welcome and good luck!

I like corn and rice pasta. My mom bought it at walmart finally supporting me and its the best gluten-free pasta I ever had. Follow the directions for amount of time to boil and the trick is to cook in some sugar (i use stevia). Its so good. Pasta is the best, in my opinion when it is baked for a little bit with the sauce on it after thorougly draining excess water

I believe the Taco Bell brand kits are NOT gluten free. But I buy Ortega and they are. I like corn pasta better than the rice pasta. It seems to not get as mushy.

Homemade pasta and sauce! You just knew I would say that. I make my own and am making more tomorrow.

Have tried both rice and corn pastas - blech. There is one brand I tasted that I do like and that is Udon King. You can get buckwheat, millet with brown rice, sweet potato...and it does not get mushy or clumpy, either.

I lived off pasta before realising I couldn't eat gluten! Now I eat Gluten Free pasta, and it is very bland. I found a great recipe and love it!

I boil the pasta and fry up some bacon or chorizo. I then put the boiled pasta in a baking tray, cover in it Carbonara sauce, add the bacon or chorizo and cover in mozzarella cheese and then bake for about 10-15 minutes and eat with salad. Its a lovely, easy simple pasta dish, and you can't even tell its gluten free pasta!

Tinkyada is the best gluten-free pasta we have found. Our son does not like sauce on them, just his dairy/soy free "butter." He even likes the colored one that has a small amount of veggie mixed into the pasta (shhhh! Don't tell him! LOL)

We like Schar and Bio-Nature, but bio-nature has soy so I don't use it much. If you don't care about soy, it's like wheat pasta.

Also, a lot of the time for spaghetti, we use spaghetti squash instead of starchy noodles, it's really good and even my picky "traditional" husband accepts and loves it! Takes up the flavor of the sauce very nicely and our grain-free daughters can eat it.

I love GoGo Quinoa's Rice and Quinoa Pasta because it stays firm but it's super light. 

I like Eden tomato sauce, I add my own cooked hamburger meat and spices and onions.

 

As for hard shell tacos, yes usually gluten free, but not corn free if that's an issue for you. If it is, you can make your own corn free shells using flour, water, oil and salt and baking them in the oven. 

1 c flour

2 T  oil

¼ t sea salt

1/3 c warm water

I've been gluten free forever, and it gets easier don't worry.
