Reviews For Organic Quinoa Pasta Shells

Based on 14 Reviews

I adore these!

I'm always skeptical when trying new foods. You never know how they're going to turn out. I honestly love this pasta.

It cooks up like normal (the water gets a bit more foamy because of what the pasta is made out of) but doesn't to describe it? If you overcook pasta, it can almost dissolve in your mouth. This pasta doesn't get like that. It's the perfect, firm texture.

Essentially, it's just like regular pasta but in my eyes, better!

healthier choice , how ever you need to be vigilant on the cook time (precise) otherwise it will over cook really easy.

Tasty Pasta

I really like these little shells. The texture is good and flavor mild. The organic corn doesn't seem to bother my mild corn allergy, perhaps because it is NON-GMO. I thought this was a pound package but it's only 1/2 lb, so I consider it wildly overpriced, even after the Thrive Market discount.

Best gluten free pasta!

I've tried a number of gluten free pastas out there and this is the best in taste and consistency. I almost didn't know I was eating gf pasta and actually gets al dente. Just ordered three more boxes.

- Jennifer


This was great and almost like eating regular noodles. Very filling. Was impressed how much it made.

- Vicki

I love this stuff

I was skeptical at first due to not being familiar with quinoa pasta's texture, but it held up just the same as egg yolk pasta would! Delicious tossed with a marinara and some arugula/kale. :) Would buy again.

Great Gluten Free Pasta

Easy and quick to prepare and very tasty.

- Pat

Good Stuff

This was good, but I thought it was another kind of grain.

- Vernita

Love Ancient Harvest!

See my full review of this brand's gluten free pasta on the Elbows page...but to sum it up I love this stuff and have for a long time!

- Samantha


The taste is good - just make sure not to over cook the pasta and rinse well after it is done.
Be also aware that the package is twice as big as the containing product and that it will barely be enough for 2 small servings. This was a huge disappointment for me.

- Fay

Great price!

This pasta is a great staple for gluten free families, and the pricing through Thrive is fantastic.

- Megan

Gluten free pasta

This pasta fits into a gluten free diet, and it's a nice alternative to wheat based pasta. It has two ingredients, corn flour and quinoa flour, that's it. No sugar, salt or preservatives. It has a nice grainy flavor that isn't overpowering, and gives you all the health benefits of quinoa. I use it in casseroles and pasta bakes, but it also works well as a cold pasta salad.

- Amy Curtis

Small But Good

These are some pretty good shells. We love a lot of delicious foods from the Ancient Harvest company, and since my husband has a gluten intolerance, we have to stick with gluten-free noodles. This has been a great way to enjoy gluten-free pasta. However, be aware that the shell pasta is way smaller than the regular types of shell pasta you may be used to. They're delicious, but they're pretty tiny.

- Aimee S.


This Gluten free pasta is made of corn and quinoa, but it tastes just like the real deal! It is so great! My family didn't even know the difference!
I have used it for mac-n-cheese, tuna casserole, sauce n shells....It cooks to perfection every time and tastes great! I love that it is gluten free and a healthy alternative to traditional pasta
