Pasta! Pasta!

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.
