Cappello’s Gluten-Free Pasta

By Laura (The Gluten-Free Traveller)

If you are both gluten-free and grain-free and find yourself craving a big bowl of delicious pasta then Cappello’s gourmet pasta may be just what you have been searching for.

Cappello’s are a Colorado based gourmet food company who specialize in high-end gluten-free and grain-free pasta. They use almond flour as the base ingredient for their fresh gnocchi, fettuccine and lasagna sheets.

Each of their products are made in a 100% gluten-free facility and additional gluten testing is done to ensure their products are truly gluten-free and safe for celiacs. They cook very quickly, especially the fettuccine which is ready to eat in a timed 45 seconds! The pasta is fresh but can be frozen to prolong its life.

Cappello’s products are high-end and therefore come at a price. Definitely not an “everyday pasta”, but perhaps a pasta for a special occasion or as a treat to yourself. Four 9-12 oz packages will cost you around $40.

It’s extremely rare to find fresh gluten-free pasta. Cappello’s products are delicious and full of flavor. The fettuccine is absolutely delightful with homemade tomato sauce. This is some of the best gluten free pasta I’ve ever tasted.

  1. I’ve been told to not to let my son work in bakeries or subs shops as he could be absorbing the gluten by breathing at this point. It has been a long 2 1/2 years before the tests were ran for celiac disease. At 5’91/2″ 102 lbs we will try anything besides a strict diet, seeing the gastro, cardi, gen MD, riding off all plastics we’ll do everything to control this.
    Has anyone ever heard that gluten can be like 2nd hand smoke?

  2. The pasta does look delicious, but as the post mentions, the high price makes it more of a treat than an everyday food.

    Nancy…I am a little confused (and concerned) by your post when you say, “we will try anything besides a strict diet.” Removing all gluten from one’s diet is the only treatment for celiac disease at this point, and if a person with celiac disease continues to eat gluten, (s)he will continue to become more ill because nutrients are not being absorbed properly through the intestinal villi.

    I apologize if I misunderstood your post, but I just want you and your son to be okay. Eating a gluten free diet is restrictive in certain ways, but it does not mean that a celiac sufferer cannot get enough calories. There are many naturally gluten free foods and many alternative choices for those with celiac disease. :)

  3. Nancy, Gluten is not like 2nd hand smoke, but flour can float in the air for 24 hours and by breathing where there is a lot of regular flour being used, you would be breathing in gluten. I have gotten sick one time from the flour aisle at the store. I was right there when a sack broke and went poof. Now, I just hurry through the flour part of the aisle.

  4. where can these pastas be found? We really like the Schar noodles. My son is gluten sensitive (so am I) with several reactions when he gets a cross contaminatin but he enjoys all the foods that we previously made thanks to several wonderful cookbooks!

  5. I to nust be Gluten-free as i too have celic.
    Here is a brand of a very good pasta and sauce i buy, It is gluten frree.

    RIENZI PENNE AND RINALDI sauce you can find in the larger food stores.
    I buy ground turkey and cook for my meat.
    You never know it is a gluten meal.

  6. Rienzi makes both gluten and gluten-free pastas. Make sure you buy the one that is clearly marked “Gluten-Free! Made from corn and rice!”

    The Rienzi pasta that says ” made from 100% semolina flour” is gluten; semolina is a kind of wheat.

  7. @Nancy: yes, I’ve heard this, and it’s true. Breathing in gluten could set off of autoimmune issues.

    A strict gf diet does not mean your son can’t have yummy food. You can easily find gluten-free recipes for all his gluten-filled former favorites.

    Of course, if he was living on pizza, chicken nuggets, cookies, crackers, and bread before he was diagnosed–well, that’s not a healthy diet, anyway, even gluten-free. You may need to rethink your whole approach to food, for the whole family.
