Bolognese with Gluten free pasta

At the end of last month (March) I won a competition on Twitter with Rizopia. The prize was a case of Rizopia gluten-free brown rice pasta, It is free from wheat, egg, milk, corn, nut as well as gluten-free. As a fantastic bonus all the brown pasta rice is also organic.

 Cooking with Gluten-Free pasta

We boiled the rice pasta uncovered for 7-10 minutes just like you would with normal pasta.

We added a pinch of salt as it was cooking, stirring occasionally.

When it was cooked we had to rinse it with warm water.

We cooked our beef Bolognese separately and added it on top of the rice pasta. Our Bolognese contains extra vegetables which we normally add to help us get our 5 a day. We included carrots, peas, sweetcorn, mixed peppers and onion in the tomato sauce.

I love to add grated cheddar cheese to mine!

I was surprised that it just tasted like normal pasta, but without the bloated feeling you get afterwards. It’s very tasty as pasta can be!

The brown rice pasta is healthy, natural and very easy on the digestion system. It was great to learn that Rizopia pasta is available to registered coeliacs on prescription from your GP.
Last year I baked a gluten-free cake for my husband and his mate who is a coeliac it was a scrumptious chocolate cake!
Have you ever tried any gluten-free or other free from products?

    I won a competition for gluten free pasta too mine was made out of Quinoa -it tasted the same as pasta to me but it took less cooking .the pasta shapes were great but the spaghetti was a bit thinner than normal. It was very tasty and worth trying

    I have a gluten intolerance and love rice based pasta…this looks great and so lovely to be able to have a classic bolognaise. I usually have mine with rice instead but this is worth a go! #triballove

    These sound really good! we have a lot of white pasta but I tend to not eat it and just cook it for hubby and little boy, as I don't like feeling bloated after eating. this looks worth a try and maybe I can eat pasta with them again #picknmix

    Hi Rachel, how wonderful that people who can't eat regular pasta don't have to miss out. I love the taste of brown rice, so I can imagine that rice pasta tastes pretty good too.
