Today I tried the new Barilla
gluten free pasta. Lately I've felt tired, without much energy and someone told
me to try eating gluten free. Bingo!
I'm not a fan of
anything (but Elton John) or intend to become fanatical about anything, but today I did not eat
gluten and even walked three miles at 8 pm, something I haven’t done in a long,
I had oatmeal with
almond milk for breakfast and my lunch was this aglio e olio wonderful pasta.
I'm having an affair with kale, so I substituted the parsley with kale leaves.
Since fresh kale is
hard to chew, I chopped and sautéed it for 45 seconds on the same olive
oil with garlic.
Then, I added the cooked pasta and stirred everything.
Once the pasta was
already served, I sprinkled some red pepper and Parmigiano Reggiano and I was in heaven.
I felt so good during the day I went to buy gluten flour to continue experimenting.
For now I can say,
with authority that gives me being a consummate pasta eater, that Barilla
gluten free pasta, made of corn and rice flour, is a hit in texture, color and
flavor. I already had tried eating pasta made from quinoa and did not like it.
Gluten free aglio e
olio pasta with kale | Ingredients for 4 servings
1 package of pasta (I
used gluten free Barilla’s penne)
6 cloves garlic,
6 cups kale, rinsed
and dried, cut into half-inch pieces.
Parmesan (I used Parmigiano Reggiano)
Put the pasta to cook
in boiling water according to package directions. When the pasta is al dente,
strain and let it run some fresh water to stop cooking.
In a large skillet
over medium heat, sauté the garlic in the olive oil until it begins to brown,
about 4 minutes.
Add the kale and stir.
Sauté for about 45 seconds.
Remove from heat and
add the pasta. Mix well.
Sprinkle some peperoncini and Parmesan cheese.
