    I’d love to try the Multigrain Penne — maybe for a pasta salad?

    I’d love to try the multi-grain penne. I love the Annelini for soups, I loved the Lipton soup mixes pre-celiac and the little noddles are such a great replacement.

    They all look great! Anyone know if this is the brand used by noodles & co for their gluten free pasta?

      No idea! You should ask and let me know if you find out! We don’t have them here in AZ, but I’ve gone to them in SLC!

    I didn’t even know that these gluten-free pasta products existed! We usually get penne, elbow, spaghetti and rigatoni, so any of the other pasta products that AREN’T those would be wonderful!

    I love trying new brands of GF pasta too. Seems like I just haven’t found quite what I am hoping to find yet. Would love a chance to try this brand-have never seen it at any stores near me either. Good luck to all!

    Would love the Penne! It’s our favorite in our house. 😀

  45. Alexis L June 9, 2014 at 8:57 am Reply

    I miss spaghetti! My husband makes bolognese sauce and I never eat it with pasta anymore because the gluten free options are generally unsatisfying.

  46. Reese K June 10, 2014 at 11:30 pm Reply

    Definitely the Multigrain Penne because there is lentil in the ingredients.

  47. Scott B. June 10, 2014 at 11:34 pm Reply

    Never tried Anellini, so this will be interesting.
