Gluten Free Pasta Giveaway – CLOSED!

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 9, 2009

UPDATE: This giveaway is now CLOSED!

Winner is #149 – Christy J., whose husband is GF and looking for something new to try! Congrats Christy!!!

le_veneziane_spahetti-giveaway 

One winner will recieve three boxes of GF (gluten free) pasta from DiPalo Selects!  Winner will receive 1 box each of Le Veneziane gluten free Fettuccini, Penne, and Tubetti.  These pastas are brand new to the US, and don’t even appear on their website for sale!  We are getting an exclusive look and opportunity at these great new pastas!

Here are the specs on this new corn pasta from Italy:

“Produced in the corn producing region of the Veneto, Italy, Le Veneziane pastas are made with nothing but water and cornmeal, which lends them their vibrant yellow color. Designed specifically for those with a gluten intolerance, Le Veneziane cooks up al dente, just like classic pasta.”

I’ve not tried any type of corn pasta, but would think it would add not only a fabulous color, but also a unique taste to any pasta dish!  So if you’re GF, if you know someone who is GF, if you have thought about going GF, then here’s your chance to try out some new pasta noodles!!!

Tip for cooking GF pasta: after cooking, rinse with cold water, it helps with texture.

Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to try this.

When I was first told I was sensitive to wheat, the world was not very friendly to wheat free eaters. The only alternative to wheat pasta was a corn pasta. I still remember how much I disliked it. Fast forward to today, and I’d love to try this version!

I had to learn to moderate my cooking time for GF pasta, possibly since I dislike my spaghetti served at the consistency of oatmeal!

Other readers have already stated this but, not overcooking the pasta is very important! Our favorite GF pasta is rotelle.

Sounds like a great new product. I would love to be able to try it, thank you for offering it to us.

Lyn August 10, 2009 at 4:14 pm

My favorite GF pasta is Tinkyada, but I find one still has to be careful not to overcook it or it gets mushy. Make sure you use plenty of water because the water gets starchy. I like the spaghetti and penne best. Thank you again for the giveaway.

My favorite way to fix GF pasta is to simply toss it with some freshly diced tomatoes, olive oil and some fresh basil. A dash of oregano, and it’s dinner!

I prefer tagliatelle over most cuts of pasta, but it’s difficult to find semolina tagilatelle, nevermind GF; for that, I typically use plain old spaghetti.

The best is to cook the pasta al dente to keep up a good texture so it doesn’t become mushy

Gluten free Italian pasta is great!!! I”m a fan of the corn pasta since it doesn’t ‘mush out’ like other pastas. My fave? Freshly cooked spaghetti tossed with sage fried in browned butter , topped with parmasano reggiano. Yum!!
