Gluten-Free Italpasta

Move over 100% rice pasta, there's a new kid in town.

If you haven't heard yet, Italpasta makes gluten-free pasta.

Yes, you read that right.  The same company that millions of Canadians rely on for their standard wheat pasta also offers a gluten-free version.

I had no idea this existed until a customer brought it to my attention a few months ago.  Her Celiac son was served gluten-free pasta in a restaurant in Ottawa (sorry, I can't remember the restaurant's name) and loved the pasta so much they asked to see the package.  It was Italpasta Gluten-Free.
Ingredients: Rice flour (70%), corn flour (29%), emulsifier, mono and diglycerides of fatty acids.

The pasta is offered in fusilli, penne rigate or spaghetti form.  I was grateful to receive a package of penne rigate and spaghetti from a customer of mine (Thanks Joanne!) and decided to do a taste test.

Typically, I go for the gluten-free rice pastas in spirals or penne as I normally don't care much for spaghetti.  To my surprise, I fell in love with Italpasta Gluten-Free Spaghetti! (Pictured above)  

The penne rigate is also quite good... maybe I've just grown tired of having the same shape every week.  For now, I will stick with Italpasta Gluten-Free Spaghetti.

And in closing, drool over this.


  1. Looks like a delicious gourmet meal!

  2. Costco also sells a really tasty gluten free penne - Made with Rice, corn and buckwheat.
