Alright, we’ll bite. Let’s talk about the gluten-free diet. Over 3 million people within the U.S. do not incorporate gluten into their diet for a myriad of reasons whether that be Celiac Disease or dietary preference. Regardless, we don’t want anyone to miss out on the joy of pasta. Here is a ranking of the best gluten-free pasta that tastes like regular pasta:
1. Barilla’s Gluten-Free Spaghetti
We love Barilla’s Gluten-Free Spaghetti in classic Spaghetti Carbonara! Ultimately, Barilla produces the best gluten-free Italian-style pasta for a reasonable price. The springy texture of this spaghetti is everything you would expect in regular spaghetti. While the base is corn-based, the additive of rice flours makes for a neutral flavor.
2. Barilla’s Gluten-Free Penne
Barilla is consistent with their gluten-free recipe, which makes their gluten-free penne un successo garantito! Similar to that of Barilla’s gluten-free spaghetti, this penne holds together while cooking, and can be an easy substitute for recipes like Penne Alla Vodka!
3. Garofalo’s Gluten-Free Penne
Garfalo’s Gluten Free Penne holds up like most conventional pasta and is the perfect gluten-free substitute for Pennette with Ham and Mushrooms. While this pasta is slightly more expensive than some others we mention on this list, the quality texture is worth the splash-out. Plus, it’s so good that they sell it in Italy!
4. Jovial’s Gluten-Free Brown Rice Spaghetti
Brown rice pasta might not seem like it could illuminate the qualities of regular pasta, but Jovial’s Gluten-Free Brown Rice manages to do just that. The texture of this pasta is delicate and thin and has a neutral flavor- Perfect for dishes like Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe!
