I loved this recipe. I ended up having to puree the tomatoes only because my kids are picky. However the flavor is there. I've just been diagnosed with celiac disease and I'm so glad I found these noodles. The only suggestion I have is to add a touch of oil to the boiling water and to stir immediately or the noodles will stick together forming an uncooked clump. I learned that the hard way getting busy in the kitchen. We will be having this again. Read More

This was very good! The texture of the Barilla Gluten Free noodles were great and my noodle loving toddler had no suspicions! I did not have gluten free bread so I soaked and drained some oats I blended in the food processor. This worked like a charm. I did end up adding additional garlic and other seasonings as well. If you like lots of flavor you may want to as well!:) Add grated parmesan to the noodles for an extra kick of flavor! Read More

The meatballs in this recipe are the same my Sicilian mother-in-law makes but she uses stale wheat bread. My kids and their father have been raised on this recipe and never tire of it. I had doubts about using soaked gluten free bread but it worked. I used the heel of the loaf and let it sit a couple of hours to dry up a bit. It didn't turn immediately to mush and really helped bind the meat lending a moist texture once cooked. I used Barilla GF Tortiglioni instead of their spaghetti and it held up to all the handling and made it to the plate like regular pasta. Definitely a keeper for those of us who must eat gluten free and even a very good meal for those who don't eat GF. Read More
