bionaturae Organic Penne Rigate, Gluten Free, 12-Ounce Bags (Pack of 6)
All pastas are not created equal. bionaturae organic pastas from Italy are made with the artisanal techniques of long ago. The difference between a traditionally made pasta like bionaturae and an industrially made pasta is easy to detect. The pale color and porous surface of our pasta is different because we extrude the shapes through traditional bronze dies instead of Teflon dies and dry our pasta slowly at low temperatures. This process is slower and more costly, but the difference in quality is worth it. bionaturae pasta is made by a third generation of a family of pasta makers. We offer semolina, whole wheat, egg noodles and gluten free pastas. Take time out of your day to sit down and enjoy a delicious dinner made from bionaturae organic pastas from Italy. For best results use bionaturae organic canned tomatoes from Italy for your sauce.

Isn't it "real"?Feb 12, 2010
By D. Dolan
This is one of the very few Gluten Free pastas that is so close to havng all the properties of "real" pasta that it's worth the extra expense. Most gf pastas can't be reheated without falling apart into a gluey mess. One that can be made into Mac/Cheese and not be a solid mass. At our house we even have been able to enjoy cold pasta salads again (though it needs to be eaten in a day or two). Have served this to non celiacs who have asked if it wasn't "real" and are amazed that it's not traditional wheat pastas. The texture is delicate but firm enough to hold it's shape. The taste is slightly different than traditional but with sauce (even a light one)you'd never know. Leave it to the Italians...they know their pasta...gf or not!

Awesome for gluten-free eaters!!!!!!Jan 06, 2010
By C. Bonfiglio
My daughter is gluten and dairy free, and we have tried EVERY pasta brand out there. Since I like to cook a lot at once and use the rest for left-overs, the other gluten free (brown rice and potato only brands) did not do well when re-heated, and also had a "different" consistency --according to my daughter. This brand is incredible, perfect texture, cooks easily, and my husband (who is a Sicilian) will even eat it , and once mistook it for his favorite brand! Bionature has achieved the perfect pasta for picky gluten-free eaters. If you are celiac, or gluten-sensitive, you MUST try it.

good tasting GF pastaOct 07, 2009
This pasta tastes good. It's a little different because it has potato in it. The nice thing you don't have to rinse. I noticed that it's very important to follow cooking time like on directions, so that it doesn't get too soft. On the package it gives you an exact cooking time, and it's best to follow it minute by minute.

By far the best GFree pasta out thereJun 08, 2012
I served this pasta to several non-Celiac friends and NO ONE had any idea they were eating gluten free pasta. The texture holds up even in a cold, dressed pasta salad and doesn't collapse if you stir it too much like some other brands... By far my favorite GFree pasta brand, far exceeds any others

Delicious! Perfect in Macaroni & Cheese! Stays Firm!Jun 10, 2013
By Paige Turner
I've tried many brands and types of gluten-free pasta. This is the only one that tastes like wheat/semolina pasta. And it holds up--no more mushy noodles or gritty pastas! If you taste the pasta plain, you can tell it has a slightly different taste from regular pasta. But once you put sauce on it, you can't tell at all. It is perfect for casseroles and macaroni & cheese. I cooked it for the specified time, then mixed it into my mac & cheese sauce, baked it, and it came out perfect! And when reheated the next day, it tasted great and did not turn mushy. Same for regular casseroles. I highly recommend this pasta. For me, it's a godsend.
