Strange texture, kinda mushy, even when cooking al dente. Shame because the free from penne is fabulous.
not this type...
Dreadful. the shape doesn't work with the corn recipe, by the time its al dente its falling to bits. And- you're only getting half the weight of pasta for the same price as penne?
Absolutely terrible. Has an amazing quality of being mushy and falling apart whilst still being uncooked in places, and this was after cooking for less than the recommended 8-10 minutes. Buy it at your peril.
Hello every one those experiencing problems with g
Hello every one those experiencing problems with gluten free pasta. The packet says 8 mins. I undercook pasta as residual heat add to sauce will cook through. Also water bolente as boiling. Use kettle hot water easier to use. Then use descretion thin pasta of any sort barely needs cooking. Plenty of salt as salty as the sea when comes to the boil. A tablespoon will not use it all. As salt makes the pasta flavourful. Also drain use a slotted spoon or tongs to recipes do not drain pasta use some of the water. In sauce bring to a boil the sauce and pasta careful here a few minutes then turn down. You could cheat use a microwave trust me done this with shapes and thin pasta. Pyrex dish hot water from kettle cover with glass lid. This steams and immediately starts cooking. A word of caution always pasta to sauce not sauce to pasta. One final tip use a bowl and add a colander inserted this means safety hot pans can burn with water. Use tongs or slotted spoon. Taught by Italians to cook Pasta .
DO NOT COOK
DO NOT COOK! Cooking instructions say boil 8-10 mins. As I have had bad experience with free from / UK produced rice pasta before (that's what it essentially is... ) I put the cooker timer on 4 minutes, brought the water to boil and then turned down to low heat. It self-destructed withing that 4 mins and TURNED INTO AN INDEDIBLE MUSH. Needless to say I'm now sticking to Asian made rice noodles and using them as 'pasta' when needed.
Expensive … mush
Very expensive, 4x the price of normal non gf alternative and does not cook as packet instructions, a mush after cooking for 4min not the 10-12min as stated on the packet
Fell apart when I tried to cook it. Attempted to cook twice. Disaster.
Horrible don’t deserve a star, I agree with most of the reviews pasta melts while cooking
Mash instead of pasta. Disappointed.
Worst free from product I have ever try. After few minutes cooking become as a mash. Not eatable. Disposed. Very disappointed.
Falls apart after only cooking for 5 minutes.
