We don’t normally go for the gluten-free pastas (or gluten-free boxed products in general) but sometimes you just need a little comfort food.
Pasta can be pretty hard to give up. Wars have been fought over it. Family feuds have begun because of pasta and lasted for centuries.
OK, not really, but it is frequently one of the first things people mention when you suggest going grain-free.
Many of us can continue to live a pasta-free life without feeling deprived, but if you find yourself eyeing the fettuccine being served at the table next to yours, never fear. There is hope.
Cappello’s gluten-free pasta is not made with beans or rice. It has only paleo ingredients consisting of: almond flour, tapioca flour, potato starch, eggs, sea salt, and xanthan gum.
It is pretty heavy on the carbs, but the almond flour and eggs help keep this fettuccine low on the glycemic index.
Cappello’s is our go-to brand when we’re in the mood for some paleo pasta. It tastes exactly like the real thing, no cardboard consistency with this fettuccine.
You can serve your fettuccine with your grandmother’s ancient pasta sauce recipe, or you can make this Brazil Nut Pesto instead. It’s a delicious, fatty topping that will further help prevent a spike in blood sugar and you can rest easy knowing it’s made of nutrient-dense ingredients.
The onion and radishes provide a nice crunchy texture to balance out the chewy pasta. Depending on your preference and how many people you’re cooking for, you can serve this as a main course or a side dish. You can even serve it like a true Italian and eat it as an appetizer before starting on your meat or fish.
