Did you know that October is National Pasta Month? Like many families, we love pasta in our household and I use it for a variety of different dishes – some of which are very healthy and others that we only enjoy in moderation. Earlier this year, however, I was very excited when Van’s Food released their new Van’s Simply Delicious pasta line. These whole grain pastas are gluten-free and can be prepared on the stove top in less than ten minutes, making them the perfect side dish, or quick meal for the family while you are in a hurry.
Since these meals are made using only simple ingredients and seasonings, they are perfect for families like mine who love natural foods. As well, they contain no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup, making them a much better option for almost any family. Currently, you can find Van’s Simply Delicious in three yummy, gluten-free varieties:

  • Rotini & Red Sauce features a hearty marinara and nutrient-dense pasta. Each dairy-free serving offers 12 grams of protein and 34 grams of whole grains.
  • Creamy Herb & Garlic offers a deliciously sophisticated, savory taste with 11 grams of protein and 28 grams of whole grains per serving.
  • Ultimate Cheddar Penne is made with real aged cheddar cheese for a delicious, gluten-free take on classic mac and cheese, along with 6 grams of protein and 28 grams of whole grains per serving.

We are actually big fans of the Van’s Simply Ultimate Cheddar Penne since it is not only healthy, but flavorful, making it the perfect quick lunch when we are having busy days.

    I recently found some Van’s crackers that I’m not allergic to. That is huge for me! I would love to try their pasta as well. Anything they make that is dairy-free, soy-free, and gluten-free, I would love to try.

    I want to try it because I had a HORRIBLE experience with a gluton free product that I STILL can’t get over – I bought a package of gluten free ziti because I love pasta….it was made of CORN which I hadn’t noticed when I bought it (never thought to look)–I had to jazz up the meal so much to cover the overwhelming corn taste (as much as I love corn, it didn’t work for ME as pasta)..I mixed it with my pork loin and gravy with so many add ins, just to eat it I was so upset about it all. The pics you’ve posted LOOK good and I’d like to give gluten free pasta a second chance and this would be the perfect way to 🙂

    I am sorry that I discovered this blog after the contest was closed. Being gluten sensitive, I am always looking for new foods to eat and it would have been very affordable if I had been able to win the coupons!
