What Is Gluten-Free Pasta Made From?

Gluten-free pasta is simply pasta that has been made without gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. It is what gives bread its chewy texture and helps it to rise. For people with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, gluten can cause serious health problems. Mild symptoms can include fatigue, bloating, alternating constipation and diarrhea. More severe symptoms include unintentional weight loss, malnutrition, and intestinal damage. That's why so many people are now choosing to eat a gluten-free diet. A gluten-free diet can confer a lot of benefits to its followers, including relief of digestive symptoms, reducing chronic inflammation, boosting energy and promoting healthy weight loss.

Most gluten-free pasta is made from rice flour, cornflour, or quinoa flour. These alternatives to wheat flour provide the same great taste and texture as traditional pasta, but without gluten. The best gluten-free pasta is made from 100% brown rice flour. Brown rice flour contains all of the nutrients of whole grain rice, including fibre, vitamins, and minerals. It is also gluten-free and easy to digest. There are so many ways to make gluten-free pasta that you don’t have to take our word for it! If there’s something you prefer, try it out. Gluten-free pasta made from different ingredients comes with slightly different tastes and textures, so it’s a subjective choice. Grab a couple of different pasta types and see which one works best for you. Doorstep Organics has a huge range of gluten-free pasta - check it out!

 

How To Cook Gluten Free Pasta

To cook gluten-free pasta, simply bring a pot of water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook according to the package directions. This will usually mean reducing the pasta to a simmer and letting it boil away for about 10 minutes. Everyone has a different preference when it comes to pasta cooking - some people like it al dente, or slightly chewy. Other people prefer their past to be completely soft. Try a piece every few minutes (be sure to blow on it first - it’ll be hot!) to see when the pasta is right for you. Once you’re satisfied with the texture, drain the pasta and rinse with cold water. Then, add your favourite sauce or ingredients and enjoy!

There are endless possibilities when it comes to recipes featuring gluten-free pasta. Here are a few of our favourites:

  • Gluten-Free Pasta with Tomato Sauce: This classic dish is simple to make and always delicious. Just cook your gluten-free pasta according to the package directions. Then, top with your favourite tomato sauce and shredded cheese. Whether you get that sauce from a jar, or whip something up from some fresh tomatoes, basil, a garlic, salt, and pepper? That’s up to you! Suffice it to say, pasta in tomato sauce is always going to be a hit.

  • Gluten-Free Macaroni and Cheese: This creamy and cheesy dish is a favourite among gluten-free eaters. Cook your gluten-free pasta according to the package directions. Then, mix with a gluten-free cheese sauce made from cheddar cheese, milk, and gluten-free flour. There’s nothing quite as decadent as big steaming bowl of oozy macaroni and cheese. Treat yourself with this delicious gluten-free alternative!

  • Gluten-Free Fettuccine Alfredo: This rich and flavorful dish is sure to please any pasta lover. Cook your gluten-free fettuccine according to the package directions. Then, mix with a homemade Alfredo sauce made from butter, cream, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Get the experience of a night out at an Italian restaurant in the comfort of your home, without worrying about any of the gluten side-effects!

 

There are so many different ways you can experiment with gluten-free pasta. You can take any traditional pasta recipe and simply switch out the regular pasta for gluten-free pasta. You don’t have to make any other alterations. At the end of the day, gluten-free pasta is just the same as regular pasta, minus the gluten.
