Goldbaums Gluten-Free Giveaway and Review

Remember a few months ago when I reviewed Goldbaums Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones?  Well they are doing a raffle for $200 of gluten free food!!!  How awesome is that?  I think it is amazingly awesome, $200 of free food is great for anyone.  How do you get in on it you might ask?  Simply click here and fill out the simple form.  It is as easy as that.

Now for the review!  When I got the ice cream cones I also got some pasta.  I'll admit I was leary of the pasta on looks alone.  They look great and normal in the photos but, they have this odd slightly green look when they arrived.

Here's the thing though the color was no indication of how good this pasta is when it is cooked.  When it was cooked the odd color went away and the flavor and texture was spot on.  I didn't do anything "special" with the pasta.  Mac & Cheese and pasta salad was made with the elbow.  I did two batches of spaghetti and one turned out right and the other didn't.  The one that didn't was ALL MY FAULT.  I didn't follow the package directions which is key.  When it says to rinse the pasta do it.  

Cooking the pasta was different than traditional pasta.  You bring water to a boil, add salt and a tablespoon of oil.  Then you add the pasta and cook 3-5 minutes and then take it off the heat and cover it.  You then have to let it set about 15 minutes for it to finish cooking.  Rinse and then use as you would traditional pasta.  

Don't forget to enter the raffle to get some of this great pasta for free!  If you can't wait or aren't the lucky winner you can purchase Goldbaums Pasta from Amazon.  Remember purchases from Amazon via a link on this site helps keep the site going.
