Our family loves pasta. Especially my daughter. She is a noodle freak! Before I began my Gluten-Free life we would have pasta at least once a week. It's convenient and easy. Especially when you have two kids playing sports and you need to make something quick for dinner. I knew there were a lot of options for pasta that were GF but to be honest they looked GROSS! I did break down and bought some brown rice spaghetti noodles. Last night was just one of our busy family nights, work, practice, meeting. You get the idea. So I cooked up some meat sauce while my family was at practice. I made them their own separate pot of regular noodles and a small pot of my "special" noodles. As I was cooking them, I still had my doubts about how good this meal was going to be. The water had turned completely white, you couldn't see a noodle floating anywhere in the pot. They were sticking together. I knew that I was going to get myself a Charlie version of spaghetti (that is a Twilight reference for you non-twilight fans LOL). However after MUCH stirring the noodles were done. I smothered them in sauce and I actually enjoyed it. The noodles were not so great that I would eat them plain but at least I know now I can enjoy pasta with my family again.
