2-ingredient gluten-free pasta that tastes like the real thing
I’ve tried whole-wheat pasta, and I just don’t like it. It’s too thick and chewy. Wheat products give me a uncomfortable feeling of fullness even with a small amount so I stay away from wheat and gluten. I’ve tried numerous gluten-free products, and have found that they just taste weird. Many gluten-free items contain rice, which isn’t good either because rice contains naturally-occurring arsenic.
When I saw this gluten-free pasta with just two ingredients: corn and quinoa, I had to try it. It’s also certified organic. The directions say to cook it in boiling water for 8-9 minutes, but that’s definitely not enough time because it’s hard to chew.
I put the pasta with a few shakes of salt, about two teaspoons of olive oil, in boiling water for 15 minutes. Then I drained it and rinsed the cooked pasta with filtered tap water. The end result is pasta that tastes really good. Make sure to get the “shells.” I tried the “elbows” which is their macaroni-style pasta, but that one tastes like the gluten-free pasta people dislike.

Here’s the link to buy it from Amazon, but I’ve found it much cheaper at the grocery store:
