This was one of the only reliable and tasty GF spaghetti-style pastas we were able to find (and I tried many). We have been using this product for several years, ever since my daughter was diagnosed with celiacs disease Despite the expense, we loved this product! The pasta was not mushy or grainy; it held its shape after boiling, blended nicely with various sauces, and tasted close to traditional pasta with a nice nutty flavor from the quinoa. I could still make spaghetti and meatballs for my kids! I would say I used it 3-4 times a month (and I would make a pound of pasta -- two boxes -- for each meal).
But the last four boxes I bought have not been the same. The water quickly turns very cloudy and yellowish, as if we were cooking with corn-based flour (not the quinoa). The pasta comes out mushy and broken after boiling. The texture no longer resembles traditional pasta, and the sauce does not blend well in with the spaghetti. I've had to throw out the last two batches because the final product was a coagulated mess that neither of my children would eat. And, yes, we followed the cooking directions closely -- we are long-time experts with this pasta.
Something is definitely different about the recipe from the manufacturer. I assume that corn flour is much cheaper than quinoa, and this may have prompted Ancient Grain to tinker with the formula, but frankly, the new product sucks.
Gravely disappointed in Boston.
Even so, I wasn't expecting a miracle. Even as it cooked and I was tasting for doneness, I was noticing grainy textures that weren't that great. But I kept tasting, and right around the suggested cook time, it smoothed out. I drained immediately and dressed with a really light sauce. There is no noticeable "off" flavor to the pasta and it has a great "al dente" texture. I am confident I could serve this to someone who didn't know it was regular pasta and they'd never think anything of it.
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the product has changed? We typically order a case every 3 - 4 months. Our last good batch was ordered back in early Jan.
A few tips on cooking: Make sure to not overcook it, like any pasta it will lose its structure and fall apart a little when over cooked. Check it frequently and taste test it before draining it. The cooking time on the box is pretty accurate, but only if you have put the pasta into boiling water initially. Don't ever throw the pasta into water that hasn't started boiling yet and expect it to cook in the time stated on the box. Make sure to rinse the pasta for a few seconds after straining to stop the cooking process. This pasta holds it shape if cooked right and can even be reheated the next day with no issues. Most of you probably already know this, but the few negative nellys out their appear to have not learned these tips yet. It really is fantastic. I'm salivating just thinking about it right now. :)
