Our family decided a long time ago to avoid wheat and also go organic. After trying several options for WHEAT free, in pasta, we landed on Vitaspelt as the best alternative. Tinkyada (spelling?) is a good one also, but this has more texture to it than the rice type pastas and a better flavor. I’d never cook it to the 10 minute mark it gives though. And if using this for mac and cheese – cook a tad less than it calls for in time – maybe barely 6 minutes, then after putting in the hot cheese mixture, placing it in the caserole dish, adding your sliced tomatoes on top – pop it into the oven for yummy home made mac and cheese. No one will ever know this is a wheat free alternative I found any longer than 6 minutes with the added cooking in the oven and it gets too soft. One word of warning with Vitaspelt products – READ the labels as some of them are WHOLE WHEAT & spelt, which takes away from the avoiding wheat. We did not care for the whole wheat (hubby didn’t read the label and bought it by accident)
I purchased this item because of my wheat allergy, but it tastes even better than the semolina elbows that I was using. It cooks up in 7 minutes and even my husband who has no food allergies loves it!
