Making GFCF Pasta More Fun!

We make pasta about once a week, so it can get a bit boring. Here's a way to make pasta night a yeast-fighter AND more fun for the kids!

Tinkyada brand pasta is made with brown rice flour and tastes like the real thing. This is what we serve when playdates come over because the non-GFCF kids can't tell the difference. Make it more fun by serving it with kid-friendly chopsticks!

The pasta in this picture is Tinkyada brand GF pasta spirals. We make it per the package directions, minus a minute or two on the cooking (we think it comes out a bit too mushy when you follow the directions). After draining and rinsing, we mix in some coconut oil and some salt. We've used unrefined and refined coconut oil. I thought the coconutty-taste of the unrefined oil would be weird on the pasta, but it was actually yummy! (Coconut oil is a yeast fighter, too!)

Serve with cute chopsticks, and your kid(s) will get some at-home occupational therapy (helps with fine motor control) and have fun at the same time!
