Ancient Harvest Veggie Curls Pasta, Gluten Free 12 Pack
- "This tastes pretty good for a gluten free pasta." in 1 review
If you cook this right, it tastes exactly like regular pasta. The ingredients make it somewhat of a super food, and it is easy to pair with plenty of other healthy foods for a delicious dinner. I have bought and cooked this pasta dozens of times, and I will say that just the slightest bit of undercooking or overcooking will alter the flavor and texture. It can get soggy, grainy, or fall apart. Also, it is very grainy cold, so don't try to use it in a cold pasta salad. Additionally, if you are planning on making leftovers, leave the pasta that will be leftover slightly undercooked. Microwaving will bring it to perfection the next day.
I'm obsessed with Quinoa, so naturally I had to try this pasta. It tastes just like regular pasta, but you get the benefits of this super-grain. It's pretty filling, more so than wheat-based pasta. My only complaint is that you have to get it just right, otherwise it can be gummy or have a weird texture.
One of the better GF pastas, I wish they'd label if the corn flour is non-gmo. My kids eat this GF pasta without any complaints. Due to the corn, you have to make sure you cook it well or if can become gummy. But when well prepared its delicious.
I love the fact that this pasta is made from quinoa! Making it so much healtheir! Though I don't mind the taste that much; I'll have to say the taste is not that good. It has a grainy texture and taste of cornbread.
For being gluten free, this tastes like wheat. I have Celiac Disease and have never had a problem eating this product. Can be a little on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for.
Perfect pasta for the busy gluten-free family. When we switched our household to gluten-free, this was the first pasta I purchased and I still do 2 years later.
Love these! Great substitute, still has a great texture and taste. Haven't gone back to gluten pastas since having this brand. Love all of their pastas!
This is a new staple in our diets. We make them and put them in the fridge to use later on salads or other dishes just for the nutrition
I am not huge on GF products. But I have to say I really love this brand. So when we need a GF option this is the brand I lean towards.
This is my favorite pasta now I love this brand but when I found this my world was changed they taste amazing and no tummy problems!
Q & A
How long do these take to cook? I don't need the box directions just peoples opinions as I know the directions on the box can be wrong. Also I know corn pasta can take longer than others so is this a longer time cooking product?
