What is it? A gluten-free pasta made with rice, quinoa and amaranth, so it offers a heartier flavor and more fiber than rice pastas. It’s also less prone to the gummy texture that befalls some gluten-free alternatives.
Nutrition snapshot: This gluten-free pasta makes a meal, so it packs in 200 calories but only 15 calories from fat per 2 oz. serving (that’s standard compared to gluten-containing multigrain pasta). Each serving contains 3g of fiber and 5g of protein. It’s also enriched with vitamins and minerals like niacin and folic acid.
Ways to enjoy: Penne just might be the most versatile pasta shape. Prepare this gluten-free brand by baking in a casserole, chilling and mixing with fresh vegetables for a summer pasta salad or top with zucchini, tomatoes and cream.
