Six delicious fresh pastas made without rice, corn or wheat. Instead, a gluten free mix of millet, tapioca, sorghum, teff and amaranth is used to create six different fresh pasta shapes.  This pasta contains eggs.  We like these pastas because they cook up really nicely, have a good texture and flavor and contain no rice or corn. If you need to avoid gluten, but can’t tolerate rice flour, this is a tasty option.
