Jovial Foods Tagliatelle: Review

I received some samples of Jovial Foods gluten-free pasta back in January, lasagna noodles and tagliatelle. Jovial Foods started making gluten-free items recently. They also make wheat-full pastas.

I’ve tried Jovial GF pasta before with wonderful results; they have a yummy product to be sure. This time around I loved the tagliatelle, the lasagna noodles less so.

 I quickly cooked up the lasagna, it’s the first lasagna I’ve made since 2005 when I cut wheat out of my diet as I was having some stomach issues (turns out I’m slightly wheat intolerant so I’ve maintained a wheat-free diet since then).

Sadly, over half of the lasagna pasta noodles were broken. I don't know if that's a function of shipping or of the GF-nature of lasagna noodles. Then when cooked, the noodles were fine, just not super spectacular, like I want to run out and make lasagna every week. That might be me though and not the noodles; maybe I'm no longer a lasagna person.

Now the tagliatelle, I would use this product every week and serve it to friends and family. The nests of noodles were all intact and usable. Once cooked, the noodle is bouncy and light; it has the right texture, that eggy look and flavor. It cooked up perfectly. Overall, the tagliatelle is an excellent addition to Jovial Foods gluten-free family of pastas.

Is that a gorgeous plate of pasta!
 Thank you Jovial Foods for continuing to innovate with gluten-free noodles!
