My 300th post!!! And a tasty one at that.
Since I enjoy most of Tinkyada’s brown rice gluten free pasta, I thought trying a new shape would be fun- not to mention it was also on sale for 99 cents.
I tried the Tinkyada fettucini noodles a couple of times with mixed results. Overall, here is what I discovered:
*This shape didn’t seem to be as consistent as their other gluten free pasta shapes. It was difficult to get it to that perfect al dente stage. I would definitely suggest undercooking it for best results- around 12-13 minutes worked well for me.
* Be sure to stir the noodles as they are cooking, otherwise you will end up with a clump of sticky, hard noodles. Definitely not tasty! Likewise, even when I did stir the noodles regularly, I still ended up with some hard lumps of noodles stuck together.
*These noodles tend to be fairly soft with a slightly chewy center, even when it is undercooked. However, they do not break during my fork test - I could twirl the noodles on my fork with no problems.
*The sauce clings to the noodles fairly well. I hate it when the noodles are so slippery I end up with a pool of sauce underneath my pasta!
Overall, I thought Tinkyada’s fettucini noodles were so-so- not great but not bad either. However, I will stick to their other shapes in the future.
