Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Pasta Fusilli
Tastes Like: Pasta! You probably would never know the difference if I snuck this to you on the sly and never tipped my hand. The uncooked brown colour fades and the pasta looks like regular wheat pasta…if maybe a little more translucent.
Great With: Anything you normally pasta with. Great for Sunday Gravy, served cold in a pasta salad or – get ready for this – atop a smear of hummus, topped with roasted veggies!
Perfect For: Instantly satisfying brown-bag lunches at work (I put it over hummus in a Tupperware, top with edamame and tomatoes, and eat it cold).
Says “Gluten Free” right on the outside!
$1.99 for a whole lotta pasta. I make up half the bag on the weekends and distribute it among five lunches. Such a cheap pantry staple to have, and so versatile, it’s worth always keeping some around to have as a last-minute meal!
