Hi there,

I used to use something called Ms. Leepers tri-color corn pasta. It was good in cold salads and in the normal hot preparation. Also, Trader Joes has a brown rice pasta that I've used as well but it is a bit more 'gummy' I guess you could call it. Some people also really like quinoa pasta but it always gave me a tummy ache. Whole foods has several different types you can take a look at.

I've also used shirataki noodles as pasta and tonight I made spaghetti squash mixed w/ pasta sauce and ground turkey and that was amazing.

Good luck and let me know what his preference is I think it varies greatly depending on taste.

I have given up on any kind of GF pasta. I try to eat lC anyway, but my few forays into GF pasta have been super disappointing. I generally just use spaghetti squash when my family is eating pasta these days.
Sorry I can't be of more help. Generally I've found that replacement foods, with the exception of GF brownies and Betty Hagman's pizza crust recipe, aren't that good.

I had the brown rice shell pasta last night. I bought it in the GF section at WalMart. It was pretty good! I like the texture of pasta every once in awhile and this seems to satisfy that when you cover it with sauce

i eat low carb now, but i used to love the TJ's brown rice pasta. i even used to get it before my celiac diagnosis because it was better than the whole wheat pasta. i believe it's the same as the tinkyada pasta they sell at health food stores (for several dollars more per bag.)

now i use spagetti squash.

Thanks everyone! My problem is we have no whole foods here, so our selection is limited to our local Kroger. Of course I can order online, but is so much easier to run in and grab a box to try.. I will let you know what we discover.

I was just informed that Netrition plans to carry the Tinkyada brown rice pasta. Should be available before the new year. I'll let you know when the product is available for sale.

Tinkyada brown rice pasta is now available at Netrition. Brown rice pasta is gluten free. It's available in elbows, lasagna, penne, spaghetti, and spirals.

We have Tinkyada Pasta - got it at local healthfood store - (we are 3 hours away from trader joes and whole foods) and my 7 year old loves it....(I don't eat cause I'm low carbing) but she is a pasta fiend...eats it with olive oil and parmesean cheese - she would live on that if I would let her! LOL

tinkyada pasta is miles beyond in deliciousness in the word of gf pasta. Not lc, but actually tastes good. I find it at my local grocery store, which is not in a fancy neighborhood at all.

It's not pasta, but I thought I'd share this......I'm planning to make mexican lasagna for NYE. I'm using pure corn tortillas instead of noodles (although I just bought the Tinkyada ones at a local food co-op and can't wait to try them). Layering tortillas, meat, salsa, cheese, black beans makes a delicious "lasagna". I used to make this with flour tortillas before I went gluten free.

that sounds great!

I just picked up San Zenone corn pasta to try, I rarely eat pasta but had heard this is a very good brand

I've the corn pastas (rotini) in pasta salads, and it's not too bad, but the special gluten-free pastas are usually about 3 x the cost of regular.

Instead, I buy my pasta in the asian section of my supermarket. I buy the wide rice noodles and break them in to one or two inch pieces for regular flat noodles, and use the thinner rice noodles in place of spaghetti. You really don't pay more in the asian section for these pastas than you would for regular wheat pasta.

quinoa is what pasta we eat the most. Haven't had any stomach issues with it here. Guess it is one of those individual digestive things.

Seconded. Spaghetti squash with a little butter and basil is excellent.

Put some pasta sauce on it and you pretty much get the spaghetti experience without the gluten.
