My review of Rizopia organic brown rice pasta

Recently I was sent some new gluten free brown rice pasta to review,  Rizopia was Winner of a Free From award 2013 for gluten free pasta, I was keen to try it.

The pasta is free from Gluten, Wheat, Egg, Milk, Corn and Nuts an impressive start!

I was sent a variety of pastas including Lasagne. Penne, Fettuccine,

Shaped pasta for children called Fantasia (with fun shapes like fish, hearts, bicycles, footballs )

Spaghetti and Elbow ( macaroni )

Gluten free Pasta has always been a favourite in my house  but recently due to the fact that I am trying to live grain free I had rather forgotten to buy it for the family. They were very happy to have it back on the menu.

First we tried the Fusilli, they were very impressed. We liked the texture and flavour. This pasta does need a good rinse with boiling water when drained, because it is made from rice and was quite starchy.

I served with a savoury mince sauce covered in grated cheese

Next we tried the Penne, I decided to make my men folk a pasta bake using a homemade bolognese sauce.

This was a winner with my family

If these two pasta’s are anything to go by the family will love all of the varieties of pasta from Rizopia.

I am looking forward to making some macaroni cheese using the Elbow pasta
