How much do I love Catelli pasta right now?! Not only did they send me some samples of their new gluten-free pasta, but they are going to gift one lucky Earthgiven Kitchen reader with a year supply! That’s 60 boxes delivered to your door.

The pasta is made from a blend of rice, corn and quinoa (GMO-free). Maybe like me you’ve tried corn or quinoa pasta in the pasta and was not impressed with the taste or texture. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Catelli’s gluten-free pasta is delicious and the texture is great, no mushy noodles.  Try it yourself with a coupon here.Catelli gluten freeIt’s perfect timing to share a new pasta recipe. I make this when I want a quick, hearty meal that I know the kids will love. It’s similar to my Tomato Cashew Pasta but swapping chickpeas for the cashews lowers the fat content.
