There’s a new pasta in my life and it’s name is Jovial brown rice pasta. I have been perfectly content with the brown rice pasta I have been using for years, but I have to admit that this one is better.
Jovial makes pasta from einkorn, which does contain gluten, and from brown rice. Be sure if you purchase any of their pasta that it is the gluten-free variety.
I wouldn’t say that Jovial pasta is way better than any other gluten-free pasta I’ve tried, but it is noticeably better. My family noticed it the first time I served it. They have liked the pasta I’ve been using, but when I served Jovial I received comments like, “This pasta is really good.”
One big difference I noticed is the flavor which is more similar to a regular semolina pasta than other gluten free pastas I have tried.
Another difference is the texture. It wasn’t mushy and leftovers that were kept in the refrigerator were not as hard and brittle as other pastas. I’m not sure I would use it in a cold pasta salad, but I might.
I found the pasta to be consistently good among the different shapes. I particularly liked the capellini which is a very thin spaghetti, like angel hair pasta. I have not found that in other brands of gluten-free pasta.
