Best Tasting Gluten Free Pasta

Quina PastaMost people know that pasta is not the healthiest food.  And whole grain pastas tend to be inflammatory for a lot of people. I generally use brown rice pasta because it is easy to find at the stores, but I wanted to explore more gluten-free pasta options.  I decided to do some taste testing of gluten-free pastas with the neighborhood kids and here are my results:

  1. 1st PLACE: Quinoa Pasta, texture was great and quick to cook!  Quinoa is a healthy grain that naturally is a complete protein.  This is the perfect pasta or grain to use in vegetarian dishes.
  2. 2nd PLACE: Corn Pasta, texture was good and fairly easy to cook!
  3. 3rd PLACE: Brown Rice Pasta, texture gets a little gummy and sticky.
