A few weeks ago, I got an email from Capello’s Gluten-Free. They asked if I would do a product review of their gluten-free/grain-free pasta.
I’m not one to turn down free food (as long as it’s “clean” food), and I was super curious to try pasta made from almond flour, eggs, and tapioca flour. Obviously, I agreed to give it a try.
A few days later, a box arrived at my door. Inside it was a cooler filled with three varieties of pasta: fettuccine, lasagna sheets, and potato gnocchi. I was intrigued!
Each box was carefully sealed, and the pasta inside was hand wrapped in really neat black and white tissue paper (I like presentation!).
I decided to start with the fettuccine, and I snapped some pictures along the way. Check it out!
Since the noodles are pre-cooked, they only need to be re-heated in some boiling water.
I decided to keep it simple and just brown up some grass-fed ground beef to top the noodles.
I was surprised by how similar the noodles were to “regular” noodles.
Dinner is served!
It was actually pretty delicious…
My husband and I really enjoyed this out-of-the-ordinary dinner. You should definitely give Cappello’s a try!
Note: Because this pasta is made largely from nuts (almonds), I recommend having it as a treat, and not on a regular basis. But it is definitely a very delicious treat!
