I was contacted by Jovial Foods to review their Gluten-Free pasta and products they represent. All comments are my own and no compensation other than product was given.
I have to say, Italy knows how to make Gluten-Free pasta! I have been sampling Gluten-Free pasta and so far pasta from Italy, like Jovial, wins hands down! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since pasta originated in Italy. But what I was surprised about is the other Jovial Foods are also from Italy! The photo below shows the products they sent me.
Jovial Gluten Free Pasta and Products Review:
I was so excited to try the traditional egg Gluten Free pasta! I have missed eating a great tasting, good mouth feel Gluten-Free egg pasta! Although I was sent spaghetti noodles I really wanted to taste the wide egg noodles they had sent. This is the photo of them draining after boiling.
I then used the jar of diced tomatoes Jovial Foods sent to make a home-made spaghetti sauce for the pasta. The tomatoes were very sweet and flavorful! The egg pasta was so good! No one would have known it was a Gluten-Free pasta. I wish the chain restaurants would use an Italian made Gluten-Free pasta for their dishes. I know I will be buying only Italian made Gluten-Free pasta even if I have to order it online. It tastes so much better. They even have lasagna noodles that are Gluten-Free!
I found that Safeway/Carr’s in Anchorage carries Jovial Foods as does Sav-U-More in Homer where I live! I will just have to find this product and stock up! Everyone in the lower 48 this product should be easy to find…the Jovial Foods site has a store locator.
I sprinkled nutritional yeast over the spaghetti sauce I had made, giving it a cheesy flavor. I also picked my own green beans and had them with the meal.
The Gluten Free fig fruit filled organic cookies were fabulous. I wasn’t too sure at first as they were small round little cookies and I thought there wouldn’t be much fig filling, but there was a lot of filling and they have superb flavor, so much so that my husband ate 6 cookies! I will be searching for them or buying them on Jovial’s Online Store.
