Del Ugo Gluten Free Organic Chickpea Spaghetti

If I had to name my top 5 gluten free products, Del Ugo’s Gluten Free Chickpea Spaghetti would be right in  there.

Why? Where shall I start…..

  • High in soluble fibre
  • High in protein
  • Organic
  • Made with free range eggs
  • Low GI
  • Cooks from fresh in 6 minutes
  • Can be frozen
  • Cooks from frozen in 7 (yep, SEVEN) minutes
  • My local Waitrose sells it for £1.59 (a true bargain)

When cooked I think this gluten free chick pea spaghetti tastes better than regular pasta. It has a lovely nutty taste and the pasta holds together really well. Each pack contains two spaghetti nests and I find this more than enough for 2 people.  I love it with some green pesto stirred in and a good grating of Parmesan, a fresh tomato sauce or today I ate with roasted veggies and Piquillo Pepper & Chilli Pesto I found in Waitrose

Have you tried a good gluten free spaghetti? Would love to hear if you have.

      Thanks, I haven’t tried that brand of pasta but I’ll look out for it. I’m a bit of a fan of the Hale and Hearty quinoa and rice pasta.

        For the chickpea spaghetti, I sautéed: garlic, spring onions, organic chicken breast, courgette, mushrooms, tomatoes …and mixed it in with the pasta. Salt, pepper, a bit of pesto, parmesan. Side of steamed kale & broccoli, which I ended up tossing into the pasta too. Delicious!!

    Can you still find the Del Ugo product above? We can’t, having looked in Waitrose and online at Ocado. However, they seem to make a chickpea fusili instead.

      Yes, I think you’re right. I checked the Dell Ugo website and only the chickpea fusilli is listed. I’ve emailed the company and will update this blog post when I hear back from them. Hopefully this will be stocked at Waitrose and Ocado. Luckily I still have a packet of the chickpea spaghetti in my freezer!
