Rice Pasta

Light, tender rice pasta works beautifully in all sorts of recipes - from soups and pasta salads to classic sauced pasta dishes.

Choose classic penne or gigli, floral-inspired pasta shapes that take their name from the Italian word for "lily." Penne, 1 lb.; Gigli, 14 oz. Made in Italy. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

My favorite pasta!!
November 29, 2012
I have used this product for numerous recipes from pasta dishes to salads and the consistency remains firm and the pasta is delicious. We have a member of our family who requires Gluten free and she loves it as well. It holds its firmness for hours, and have enjoyed it the next day!
Such a great alternative! Thank you!
Pros: Texture, Easy to Prepare, Quality, Flavor, Healthy

Absolutely Nasty!
November 4, 2012
I bought the penne last night and made some just now, and it was so bad I seriously stopped eating to write this review. The pasta has the texture of wet flour like it's melting in your mouth in a bad way when you chew it. It even sticks to the chewing surfaces of your teeth! I've tried almost every type of pasta on Earth (brown rice gluten free, corn/quinoa mixtures, regular wheat) and I have never had anything this bad.
Maybe with certain sauces this wet flour texture wouldn't be noticeable, but I just tossed it with some olive oil, red pepper flakes, and dehydrated garlic so there wasn't anything to mask a messed up texture.
Bottom line, if this was 2.99 pasta, I wouldn't buy it again. But it's almost 15 dollars...outrageous.
Pros: Time-saver
Cons: Texture
