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.It’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.
4 cups cooked pasta
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tbsp minced basil
1/2 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all sauce ingredients in a blender until pureed. Gently stir in the freshly-cooked pasta and serve. Garnish with extra basil leaves if desired. Makes four servings.
To enter the contest for a year supply of Catelli pasta, you must be:

Update: I could get Rafflecopter to randomly generate a winner but then my kids would miss out on the fun of writing all names on paper and pulling a winner out of a hat. The winner was chosen tonight; congratulations to Michelle! Enjoy 60 boxes of pasta! Thank you to everyone who entered.
