A few tips for getting started with gluten-free pastas:
- Shop smart. Our faves are Tinkyáda brown-rice pastas, Schär corn-rice pastas, and nutty Ancient Harvest quinoa-corn pastas.
- Listen for your timer! Gluten-free pastas can quickly go from al dente to mushy.
- Serve immediately. As they cool, gluten-free pastas firm up.
