About Me

Welcome to my blog - my ramblings about trying to find healthy, affordable gluten free food in St. John's, NL.
Despite being gluten free, I love to try new products and am always interested to hear about new places to eat.
I try to help the environment and purchase organic products where possible.

Enjoy :)

Gluten Free Pasta at Costco - Felicia Gluten Free Penne - Review

I posted a long time ago that Costco has gluten free pasta, but never got around to doing the review. Things are busy! 

The instructions on the pasta say to cook for 5-7 minutes and as I've mentioned before GF pasta needs to watched carefully so it doesn't go to mush in seconds...

As per usual, I added olive oil and salt to the water and brought to a hard boil before dumping in the pasta. It's best if you have LOTS of water so the pasta has less chance of clumping. I cooked for about 5 minutes and took it off, drained and ran cold water over the pasta. I was using it for a cold pasta salad, so I really needed it to be non-sticky! 

It was a success! It had a mild pasta taste, everyone ate it - non-GFs included, and similar to higher end GF pastas, the taste difference is hardly if at all noticeable. 

This pasta would be great with cream or tomato based sauces as well as the tubes can gather up the sauce goodness :)

  2. Last time I was there (last week) they still had the cookies - they were up near the front by the bars and fruit snacks. When I found them, they were across from the last row of freezers by the crackers & chicken broth.

  4. Molino Andriani,Felicia 4 cereal Pasta is the best GF pasta I have ever had! It is made up of corn, rice, quinoa and buckwheat. Costco has discontinued it. Other sites are out of stock. If you have a place where you can get it, I would love to have the address.
