I’ve tried many types of gluten free pasta and this one is in my top 5 list for several reasons: it cooks quickly, it keeps a nice al dente texture, and is also quite healthy for you (thanks to the quinoa). Here’s my review:
How does it look?
How does it cook?
This pasta takes 6-9 minutes to cook once at a boil, which is a miraculously low amount of cooking time for the average gluten free pasta. (Brown rice pasta, which is also nutritious, takes 22 minutes to cook. I don’t have that much patience when I’m hungry.) Warning: Once the noodles are dropped into the boiling water, you must stir them or they will become clumpy. I cook mine with a little bit of oil and salt.
How does it taste?
The texture is al dente but the pasta could be cooked longer if you wish. I have not had the chance to re-heat any of it because I ate it all so quickly and had nothing left for leftovers!
Overall, this is my favorite pasta as of today. However, it is not foolproof- I’ve had a few sticky noodles who didn’t get enough TLC in the infancy stages of cooking. But the cooking time is reasonable, the taste is enjoyable and smooth, and makes for a healthy, gluten free alternative. 4.5 out of 5.
