I have to admit that I was really hesitant to even purchase this product. Orgran has not been kind to me in the past, as long time readers know. My previous trial of corn pasta left a bad taste in my mouth, it was very crumbly and not very pasta-like. It went immediately from dried to WAAAAYYYY beyond al dente.
The Orgran pasta, though, did really well and I was shocked. I almost peed myself. After a mere 8 minutes in the pot, the noodles were firm without being crumbly, yet they still had some give. They were about as al dente as GF Pastas have been, in my experience. They also did a cool trick that Tinkyada Fusillis doesn’t generally do well: They held on to a heavy sauce.
So, WOO! These are now my favorite noodle for boiling. Not sure how they do overnight in the fridge, etc., but at least we’re started. They also didn’t leave that rice-y aftertaste that Tinkyada does.
I am pleased.
