I live with a small child who consumes so much pasta, I swear she is going to turn into a noodle. There are days she begs for noodles morning, noon and night. So I am always on the lookout for various noodles so she is not eating the same old thing, day after day. From different colors to different shapes, as well as healthier options, I search high and low for varying pastas. I was so excited to run across Eden Organic pasta company.
Eden Kamut Spirals Pasta was one of their pastas that we purchased. A 12-ounce box costs less than $4. This pasta is a tan color and comes in spirals or “curly noodles” as my daughter says. This pasta is organic, whole grain, high in fiber, and contains no salt. A much healthier version of pasta for our family. The package says it is “heart healthy,” which makes me happy!
My daughter enjoyed this pasta, as did I. I was skeptical at first of an organic, whole grain pasta. Would it be as tasty as the usual pasta we buy? It tasted great (similar to our usual pasta) and was not as tough as the other Eden Organic pasta we have tried. This was my favorite out of all of them. I have used this pasta in casseroles, spaghetti and meatballs, and as a cold pasta salad with vegetables.
Even though this is a different style of pasta, it is cooked the same as regular pasta. Place uncooked noodles in a pot of boiling water for 7-10 minutes, and then use the same as other pastas!
Eden Vegetable Shells Pasta is made on a USA family farm. It is organic, whole grain and “heart healthy.” Also, people who cannot eat modern wheat will be able to eat kamut due to its “highly water soluble gluten.”
What does this product look like?
Tan-colored spirals of pasta are in the box. It comes in a yellow and cream-colored package. The ingredients from the side of the box: “Organic whole grain kamut wheat.”
How is this product made?
From the side of the box: “Freshly milled USA family farm organically grown Kamut. Its plump, high protein golden kernels make whole grain pasta of surprisingly smooth texture.”
Eden Kamut Spirals Pasta is a healthier pasta that is organic. My child will eat it and is healthier for her, so I am thrilled! A healthier option in pastas that is “heart healthy” and actually good for you!
