Mrs. Leeper's Gluten Free Pasta | Review & Giveaway!

Giveaway Now Closed. Congratulations Angela!

 Did you know that 1 in every 133 American's suffer from Celiac Disease? I had no idea! If you have Celiac disease, eating gluten-containing foods causes damage to the lining of the small intestine. The damage makes it difficult for the body to absorb nutrients from food. Eating gluten-free foods can prevent further damage, even though there is no cure yet.

I do not have Celiac Disease, so this review has been very educational for me. I notice "gluten free" on products now more then I ever did before. I think it is great that company's such as InterNatural Foods are creating gluten free alternative products. All of the Mrs. Leeper's products are gluten-free!

We tried Mrs. Leeper's Organic Rice Pasta For Kids. These were very cute animals shapes in different colors and 100% organic. This is actually great for kids and adults. The rice pasta has a stronger flavor then wheat or durum pasta - kind of al dente. I used Prego Organic Tomato & Basil Sauce with it. That was a perfect combination and everyone liked it. My 3 year old loved the animal shapes, what kid wouldn't!

We also got to try the gluten-free Chicken Alfredo meal kit. This was very quick and easy to make. We just added cooked chicken. You could also add peas to add a vegetable to it (I do that a lot with pre-made meal kits). This meal kit is not 100% organic, but does use organic rice pasta. The seasoning is pretty mild and the flavor of the noodles is stronger than durum pasta. This one got mixed reviews. Some really liked it a lot and some thought it was ok. It was not too salty and had a mild creamy cheese flavor.

We also received the Tuna Meal kit, but I haven't tried that one yet, since I am still searching for BPA free Tuna cans. Hopefully I will find those soon so I can try this!

Who wants to try these for themselves? The generous folks at InterNatural Foods have offered to give away an assortment of the dinner kits to (2) lucky readers!
