I will only endorse a product if I passionately love it. Le Veneziane pasta is one of those products. Since Italian is my focus area of my culinary training, I am very picky about pasta. This corn pasta is exceptional: beautiful yellow color; easy to obtain the al dente texture; not gooey upon cooking; and the flavor is sublime with a delicate corn flavor that compliments whatever flavors are bought in the pasta dish. I just recieved my case of Le Veneziane past today and I'm so excited; I ordered it from Quattrobimbi.
My true test to see how good this pasta really is, was to serve it as a second course (traditional pasta course in Italian cooking) with a fresh pesto (without cheese, too) to a very picky friend from Bolgona, Italy. He loved it. He said, "Finally, some food that reminds me of my homeland." Yes!
Tinkyada Brown Rice pasta will suffice for me if I'm in a desperate bind and I'm fresh out of my Le Veneziane, but it does not really serve as proper pasta. My husband, who is not gluten intolerant, prefers Le Veneziane to ANY pasta out there. But when it comes to any of the brown rice pastas, he prefers to pass on it. Please try this pasta. It is a saving grace to all of us who are gluten free & wheat free; and the Italians make it unapologetically so.
