I've just found out that I'm allergic to Gluten. Dose anyone have some a Gluten Free Pasta recipe as well as a Gluten Free light bread recipe?

I find the best tasting gluten-free pastas to be Trader Joe's brown rice pasta, Jovial brown rice pasta, tinkyada brown rice pasta. I recently visited Macaroni Grill Restaurant and loved their pasta. It's made by Heartland. I hope this helps. Meanwhile, I have a few pasta recipes on my gluten free blog: http://glutenfreerecipebox.com.

I'm looking for more ways to make pasta dishes for my grandkids, ages 6, 8, and 10. Any ideas, besides mac & cheese?

Try Mrs. Leeper's corn pasta products. They taste delicious !! My husband can't have gluten either, and so when we found these, it was great. We didn't like the products made from brown rice flour. Corn pasta tastes so much like regular pasta I doubt you'll even notice it's corn.

There are some really good pasta alternatives out there, but my favorite is tinkyada. You boil it in the water for about 2 minutes, turn the heat off, cover it and let it sit! As long as you get it within 10-20 minutes or so, and you stop the cooking process with cold water, then it never gets gooey-it just takes a couple of times until you get it right, but you really can't mess it up. It's super easy to cook and I never notice a difference in taste. Lasagna is a bit difficult to make but other pastas are fine. Another healthier alternative is to use spaghetti squash instead of your pasta, just steam it in the oven and 'shred' the 'noodles' out of the shell when it's tender. I haven't found any good recipes for bread, but I'm sure there out there. The most delicious bread, though is Udi's. It's the only one we eat! You'll be fine once you get the hang of it! Things have gotten so much better even in the time my family has been eating GF.

I'm allergic to gluten as well. For bread, I use http://www.glutenfreecookingschool.com/a... or http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/gluten-fre... For pasta, there's plenty of good tasting gluten free pastas out there. Trader Joe's if you have one by your area, has pastas at particularly reasonable prices. Also, the Safeway where I live and Whole Foods also carries gluten free pasta. The only thing is that you have to pay attention and remove it when it's done. Before I was diagnosed, I would cook the spaghetti and not pay too much attention and it would come out fairly good. But you really have to pay attention with the gluten free pastas.
