Pasta is one of the best things in the world. It’s a midweek staple, it can be a fancier meal, or even a treat. If you’re gluten-free – whether for health reasons like coeliac disease, or for lifestyle reasons – pasta used to be one of the toughest things to find a good alternative to.

While traditional pasta might be made with wheat flour, there are now lots of alternatives out there, from brown rice, to chickpea, corn flour to vegetable-flour based pastas.

Explore Cuisine Pasta offers a range of bean-powered pastas, as well as chickpea and lentil-based pasta. So whether you fancy Black Bean Sesame Fettuccine, Edamame or Black Bean Spaghetti, they’ve got you covered.

The entire range of Explore Cuisine's pastas are naturally gluten-free and made in dedicated and certified gluten-free factories. And all the products are registered with the coeliac cross grain logo throughout Europe.

Aside from being gluten-free, Explore Cuisine is committed to trading fairly and organic farming. Through the company's Food to Thrive Foundation, it provides education and empowerment to communities in the developing world to farm sustainably and to prosper.

So if you’re looking for a smarter way to pasta, with no gluten in sight, give one of these delicious, easy and quick recipes a try.
