At last! An entirely Gluten Free pasta dish that tastes good and it’s even a little healthier too. Boulder Sausage believes food should be about bringing everyone together and providing real nutritional content, without sacrificing taste. If either you, relatives, or friends are affected by Gluten, you know how hard it can be to find products & recipes that everyone will truly enjoy, whether they are Gluten Free or not. So, we partnered with Boulder based Pieno Pasta to create truly Gluten Free recipes that are, as the Italians would say, delizioso. But don’t just take our word for it, invite the kin over and give them a try for yourself!
Linda from New Mexico – “I try to eat healthy, and the fact that BOULDER SAUSAGE makes its Italian Sausage with lean cuts of pork means I can eat a hearty meal without loading on the calories. When I want to splurge a little, I make this pasta dish with BOULDER SAUSAGE brand Italian Sausage.”
