Gluten-Free Pasta Review and Recipe

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Howdy!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thursday  Wednesday (crap I'm skipping days already). Mine was pretty good. I spent a lot of time teaching, and practicing choreography for new classes! That is definitely my favorite part of my job. I am constantly getting to learn and teach new things. :)
Yesterday, I tried out a new gluten-free pasta and was very impressed. If I didn't know it was gluten-free, I would have no idea it wasn't regular pasta.


It was tender without being mushy, and tasted great in the baked ziti I made. The best part was that even E said he loved it!! Winner!! I will be sticking with Tinkyada brown rice pasta from now on for sure! I used the shells, but they also had regular pasta and macaroni. I'm so excited to have a healthy gluten-free pasta alternative that both E and I like. No more making two different types of pasta for this girl. Now, on to the delicious and super easy baked ziti recipe I used these little beauties in. Here you go!
