Whenever I check the grocery store shelves I can never find rice pasta. Is it really beneficial? Where might I find it in SSM?

It is called Orzo and is found with regular pastas.

The health food section of Romes has it as well as Food Basics on the hill in the Asian section.It is better for you as it does not contain Gluten. Orzo is not rice pasta it is shaped like rice.

No gluten so there is no white flour. White flour (well, most flour) is really bad for you, especially the way people eat breads, pastas, etc. by eating so much of it.

White flour, whole wheat flour, rye flour, spelt flour, barley flour...all have gluten.

ok. my celiac friend introduced me to it. this is how she showed me how to make it:

saute the rice in a bit of butter for a minute or two. then add a bit of chicken broth. as the chicken broth is absorbed add a bit more. keep doing this till it is finished. she said it is more time consuming but is so much better when done slowly. then add some grated asiago cheese and salt & pepper. it is so good!

I know. I was just using this as an example because some people may not understand what gluten is.

Me too :)

Some people are under the impresstion wheat is the problem...it's not. It's the gluten in the wheat.
