Very frequently I sit down and start brainstorming about the menu my husband who is celiac and I will be eating during the week.
Most of the time I look forward to cooking something delicious that won’t take much time.
One of those tasty and easy to make meals is pasta.
Whether it’s plain, with sauce, meat, spaghetti, ravioli, fettuccini, or elbows, a plate of pasta is very easy to cook and makes my mouth watery.
I started by cooking the brand Barilla because it was the only gluten-free pasta I knew about. But then, after researching more and more and exploring the market out there, I came across a very long list of options of Certified Gluten-Free pasta that I want to share with you.

However, as I started reading about celiac-safe pasta options, I realized that there is a wide variety of gluten-free alternatives out there that I didn’t even know about. You can find almost every single food product in its free from gluten version, you just need to research and be familiar with them.
All of the pasta brands that I’m sharing with you are Certified Gluten-Free and are good options for incorporating them into celiacs’ eating lifestyle.
