It tastes like pasta—even my non-GF husband agrees!

For me, it’s the perfect gluten-free pasta. I’ve exclusively purchased this brand for over six years. Just to be sure, I’ve tried other options here and there—but no other pasta option (that I’ve tried) compares to Le Veneziane.

Long-time customers will probably recognize the name. This company has sold it before, so it’s not brand-new to us. Check out what previous customers have said about Le Veneziane pasta:

“When I found out I was gluten intolerant my first thought was, what do I do without pasta? I tried lots of different pastas but none of them hit the spot-in fact I did not like them. On a trip to Italy I found this pasta (the Italians really cater for gluten intolerances) and thought bingo! I brought back 5 packets and guarded them. Then I went on-line to discover I could get them here. This is without a doubt the best gluten free pasta on the market. And it is also GMO free which is important to me. I take it to my favorite restaurants and they make my pasta dishes with it-my grand design is that they will provide it on their menus. wonderful pasta!” (Kathryn)

“I love this pasta. I had given up on gluten-free pastas but received this as a free sample from somewhere and decided I might as well try it. The taste and texture are both great–even in leftovers a week later, the pasta was still al dente and there were no off flavors at all–just pasta. Yummy.” (Susan)

“Finally, pasta that tastes like pasta should! This pasta tastes like real pasta – no one would know the difference.” (Amy)

For the past several years, I’ve purchased a year’s worth of pasta (direct from the manufacturer in Italy) at once to save on shipping. No need to bulk-order anymore!

As with any pasta, DO NOT OVERCOOK. Cooking times will vary depending on your location and equipment, so check the pasta often and take it off the heat when it is al dente.
