(1-5, 5 being the best)
Light, delicate corn taste that marries well with all other flavors
The texture was very similar to wheat based pastas. The product cooked up easily directions. Basically: cook in boiling salted water and drain. We cooked the pasta for approximately 8 minutes to an al dente state.
Dry kitchen shelf storage -15 month shelf life.
Available online: Paypal, Google Checkout, Visa and M/C. Ordering was easy and I received my pasta quickly. The Quattrobimbi importer also offers other fine gluten free products from Italy. Hint: try the ZeroGrano cookies and crackers
I was very pleased with the performance of this pasta and would not hesitate to use it in any recipe.

This month we tested Le Veneziane Fettucce and Spaghetti. Quattrobimbi states: “Most of us conjure up images of Italy and tables laden with bread and pastries, all from wheat.
But what many people don’t realize, is that Italy has one of the highest celiac rates in Europe, partly because celiac disease is one of the first diseases physicians look for, rather than the last as here in the U.S. Perhaps due to this higher incidence, Italy is home to Europe’s largest manufacturer of gluten-free pasta, breads, and pastries.
After thorough research and testing, we've been able to find some of leading Italian gluten-free product manufactures.”
La Veneziane is exquisite pasta. It has a beautiful mellow yellow color, cooks to al dente (as it should), no mushy texture and it’s delicate flavor marries well with any sauce.
Our first recipe was Fettuccini Alfredo. The Fettucce pasta held the sauce unlike many - if not most - pastas composed of a rice blend. Each noodle coated well without a puddle of sauce left on the plate. Next we paired it with a Hungarian Goulash as expected it did well but how would it hold up with reheating while enjoying the most beloved leftovers (Goulash is always better the next day). We were not disappointed. Again the noodles held their consistency exactly as their wheat counterparts. Finally we made chicken noodle soup. I cried. The Fettucce pasta noodles were as close to wide flat egg noodles as I could remember and the noodles held their shape and texture over several days as we nibbled on the soup. We have also used this pasta in cold pasta salad recipes with more than satisfactory results. You can read the whole article here.
