Low FodMap Wheat-free Pasta Recipe

Gluten-free pasta recipe any man can make

This gluten-free pasta recipe will show you how to make your own sauce, modify store bought sauce, and how to cook great tasting gluten-free noodles.

What is different about gluten-free pasta?

I know, this may be obvious to most people. But most traditional pasta noodles are made with wheat ingredients.

Pasta sauce can also be a source of gluten. Even if the food you are eating does not list wheat as an ingredient, the equipment in many manufacturing facilities can contaminate products that are shared with wheat ingredients.

What kinds of noodles are gluten-free?

Brown rice noodles and corn noodles are the only ones I’ve tried. I actually prefer brown rice pasta over anything – even the regular pasta I used to consume.

If you’re new to gluten-free eating then you probably think brown rice pasta sounds healthy and gross. I understand. I thought the same thing. But I gave it a shot, and I actually think brown rice pasta tastes less starchy – it’s smooth.

Try not to cook too much at once though, because there is this sticky texture of bubbles (I know that’s ultra-weird) that rises to the top, just like the white stuff when regular pasta boils.

I know it’s hard to make yourself change. But I can tell you that if I can do it, then you can too. I remember how much I hated trying whole wheat pasta when I thought it was healthier for me than other kinds. But I couldn’t stand the grainy texture. That’s what surprised me about brown rice pasta: I would actually continue eating it if I found out that I could eat wheat again.

I recommend the Organic Brown Rice Pasta Fusilli from Trader Joe’s that you see pictured here. In my experience, it requires a full 9-10 minutes of cooking. Test one before you drain it, and don’t forget that pasta continues to cook after you drain it. I like to shock mine with cold water, drizzle a little olive oil over it to keep it from getting sticky. Don’t over-rinse it though. You don’t want to serve cold noodles.

Before I forget: Never cook pasta on the first date, gentlemen. It’s a true sign of laziness.

Seriously guys. If you make the mistake of inviting her over for dinner in an effort to prove your skills in the kitchen, you gotta set the bar higher. This is either “single man’s pasta” or “we’re in a relationship” pasta. There is no such thing as “I’m trying to impress you pasta” unless you’re a professional chef or have a real family recipe. Otherwise, I doubt you would have read this far.
