I have been dreaming of gluten-free fresh or frozen pasta for a while now, so I was very excited to pass the frozen pasta section at our local Publix and spy a whole bunch of new gluten-free options! The gluten-free cheese ravioli was my first pick to try, and it was a complete win. I slightly undercooked it because I like al dente. I only lost two in the cooking, and it was enough (with a small salad) for a meal for two. The texture and flavor is perfect, and you simply add whatever sauce you choose. I tried to go back for the meat ravioli, but the case was cleaned out. I hope the grocery manager takes that as a sign to keep stocking.
This part of my life began when my very sick partner was diagnosed with Celiac. Even the slightest exposure to gluten can make him very ill for several days, so I have pursued gluten-free options with thorough aggression. In the U.S. a recent surge of gluten awareness means we have more choices than ever, but it still means hunting and analyzing and tracking down parent companies. After several years now of doing so, I want to share my tricks and tips with others who are still struggling.
