Gluten Free Spaghetti & Meatballs Reviews

  • I loved this recipe. I ended up having to puree the tomatoes, only because my kids are picky. However, the flavor is there. Ive just been diagnosed with celiac disease, and Im so glad I found these noodles. The only suggestion I have is to add a touch of oil to the boiling water and to stir immediately or the noodles will stick together forming an uncooked clump. I learned that the hard way getting busy in the kitchen. We will be having this again.

  • This was very good The texture of the Barilla Gluten Free noodles were great and my noodle loving toddler had no suspicions I did not have gluten free bread, so I soaked and drained some oats I blended in the food processor. This worked like a charm. I did end up adding additional garlic and other seasonings as well. If you like lots of flavor, you may want to as well :) Add grated parmesan to the noodles for an extra kick of flavor

  • Our greatgrandkids are at ages where no one likes the same dishes. HOWEVER,this recipe went over with all three sOo easy, and VERY good

  • The meatballs in this recipe are the same my Sicilian mother-in-law makes, but she uses stale, wheat bread. My kids and their father have been raised on this recipe and never tire of it. I had doubts about using soaked, gluten free bread, but it worked. I used the heel of the loaf and let it sit a couple of hours to dry up a bit. It didnt turn immediately to mush and really helped bind the meat, lending a moist texture once cooked. I used Barilla GF Tortiglioni instead of their spaghetti and it held up to all the handling and made it to the plate like regular pasta. Definitely a keeper for those of us who must eat gluten free and even a very good meal for those who dont eat GF.

  • Made this for dinner tonight and it was a huge hit. My husband was surprised when I told him that it was gluten free. The kids both asked for seconds

  • This was one of my first GF dishes I have made and it came out delish.

  • I tried and it worked very well

  • I think it was great .loved itJudy

  • Surprisingly close to the real dealI loved the texture of the noodles, and when mixed in with some seasoning and sauce, you couldnt tell the difference Will fool many dinner guests with this.

  • Looks great.
