Choose the gluten-free alternatives of pasta

Even though it’s a fan favourite, pasta has gotten a bad reputation over the years. More than 25% of people are gluten-free, according to a study published by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which takes pasta night off the menu for many people. Now, thanks to a variety of delicious and nutritious gluten-free pasta alternatives, you can bring back pasta night no matter your preferences or dietary needs.

"There's something so delicious and comforting about pasta. For people who follow a gluten-free diet or have other nutritional requirements, giving up pasta at night can feel like a big sacrifice," said registered dietitian, health nutrition expert and mom, Lauren Manaker. "Fortunately, there are now many gluten-free alternatives that offer something delicious for everyone, so pasta night is back!"

 Cauliflower Pasta

Cauliflower is having a serious moment. You find it everywhere, even mimicking pizza crust. Not only is it versatile and delicious, it's full of nutrients like vitamins C and K, and is also a good source of folate. Plus now, you can enjoy cauliflower as the base for delicious, gluten-free pasta meal.

Chickpea Pasta

Chickpeas — also known as garbanzo beans — are tiny nutritional powerhouses that pack a mighty punch of nutrients, including fiber, potassium and B vitamins. Rich in plant-based protein and fiber, this pasta has serious staying powers, helping you avoid those annoying hunger pangs that can strike between meals.
