I know that there is some thread around here about pasta but I can't find it.

I tried some new ones lately and wanted to share about them.

Around Passover time I found some non gebrokts pastas from Gefen at the store. So I bought a bunch of them. I guess I was over eager and should have bought one and tasted right away. The one I tried for Shabbat was the shells. I only cooked it like they said and the things went flat! They are made very thin to start with and just don't hold up once cooked. They also came out very translucent. Like rice noodles. I didnt' want to throw them out being as they were a bit pricey, so I tried to salvage them by adding some of my homeade sauce ( tomato) and this was after I rinsed them cold. I then put this in the fridge and the next day, served with some cold sauted vegetables left over from Erev Shabbat dinner. Hubby said they were good. ( I wasn't feeling like eating). I tried it the next day and it wasnt' bad. They weren't as mushy as I explected, but I think I'll stick with other celiac brands. Shame is I still have like 3 other boxes of different shapes, but same thing, same company. green roll eyes

PostSubject: Pastariso   Mon Aug 18, 2008 5:47 pm

So I made that for a cold pasta salad, while making another pasta for Macaroni and cheese for dinner. This time I used a box that I hadnt tried yet. It's kosher by a Canadian house. Called Pastariso, it's brown rice, elbows. I cooked for 8 minutes, then rinsed and cooled. I let them set in the colander for about a half hour, then made a three cheese sauce and mixed them together. I sat it out for another 1/2 hour or so then baked it for 40 minutes.

I figured this would be like most others, mushy, but it wasn't . It held to gether quite well and had a great taste. Even after reheating it was good. I baked it in a loaf pan instead of a cassarole and took slices out of it. I didnt' think it would work in a cassarole since it is only a 10 oz box.

So I think next time I come across this brand I will give it another try.

Oh, this is no GMO too! and the plant it is made in is gluten free!

According to the box, they make many different pastas, and are organic! ( maybe I should have put this in the organic section?Duh!
