Gluten-Free Pasta approaches pasta three ways: with recipes for homemade fresh pastas, recommendations for store-bought brands, and also guilt-free veggie noodle stand-ins.

“Flawless Potato Gnocchi recipe shows how far gluten-free pasta has come… recipes for basic fresh pasta, buckwheat pasta, spaetzle, ravioli, tortellini and other much-missed favorites. Chapters include a comprehensive section on sauces great for either homemade or store-bought noodles plus appetizers, cold noodles/salads, hot noodles, baked pastas, and soups…. One old favorite, Potato Gnocchi, resulted in light pillowy dumplings that rival any gluten-filled counterpart. The gnocchi came together easily and would taste equally delicious tossed with a simple tomato sauce, pesto, or brown butter and sage. The gnocchi would likely freeze well, too, should you prefer a make-ahead option.”
