I've had pasta 3 times since I've been gluten free. I love pasta. Love to go for Penne with Tomato Sauce. I'm so plain... but why mess with a good thing.
I haven't been to a restaurant to try their rice pastas yet though.
I've tried Tinkyada and found that it had no flavour. The texture was fine but it just seemed strange, like something was missing.
Then I tried Schar penne and I've had that twice now. It's a fantastic substitute for me although it didn't heat up the next day very well but that could be my technique so I'll have to try again.
