Review: Tinkyada Pasta Joy: Spinach Spaghetti Style

Mmmmm… noodles….

These noodles are great!  They are possibly the best GF noodles I’ve had so far.  They have a great consistancy, they cook up well, they reheat well, they are sexy… what more can you ask for from a noodle?

Try them in this!

GF Spaghetti and Veggie Bake

1 orange bell pepper, seeded and chopped small
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped small
1 lb mushroom, cleaned and sliced
1/2 large onion, diced
3 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons oil
3 cups spaghetti sauce
12 ounces rice noodles, cooked about 2/3 of the way, drained and cooled
1/2 cup swiss cheese, grated
1/2 cup colby cheese, grated
1/2 cup colby-monterey jack cheese, grated
1/4 cup parmesan cheese (or to taste)
1 bunch green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon marjoram
1 teaspoon salt

In medium frying pan, heat oil over medium heat.

Put garlic and onions in pan, add a pinch or two of salt and cook on medium-low for approx 3 minutes (they should sweat, not saute), add peppers, mushrooms and spices and cook until liquid is largely gone and everything smells a little like bacon.

Mix spaghetti sauce in to veggie mixture and sprinkle with parmesean cheese (just enough to make it a little stiff, skip this if you’re using a thick sauce — I don’t, I used this one:

Spray a 13×9 baking dish with cooking spray and spread about 4 tblsp of the veggie/sauce mixture in the bottom.

Cover veggie/sauce mixture with a sprinkling of parmesean cheese and a handful of green onions.

Mix remaining sauce mixture with noodles in a seperate bowl for good coverage. Dump in to pan and spread out to an even depth.

Cover with another sprinkling of parmesan cheese and green onions.

Mix swiss, colby and cojack together off-site and cover top of spaghetti with said mixture.

Sprinkle with remaining green onions.

Slip in to a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.

Cool 10 minutes and cut.

    Tinkyada noodles are the best! We also like Mrs. Leepers

    I’ve not yet tried Mrs. Leepers, but now I will have to! 🙂 I also had some from a company called BioNaturae when I was first dxed that really taste like the real deal (but they are expensive!!!). Picked up some Orgran noodles from the HFS recently, we’ll see if they’re better than the gravy. 😉
