    I am not sure were you are but if there is a Trader Joe's near you They have a great Brown Rice Pasta that is a really good price too. Other than that I have been able to find any kind of rice pasta in a stores "Gluten Free" section. If you can, any pasta works and angel hair is really nice too

    I was worried this was giong to be bland, so I added some lemon juice and white cooking wine and it was excellent - the arugula really makes it flavorful! - 4/15/10
