Craving pasta? You’ve come to the right place. Pasta is a high-carb food that’s usually made from wheat flour. If you’re gluten-free, however, you can enjoy brown rice pasta, lentil pasta, quinoa pasta, and more. Pasta, of course, is the prototypical ingredient in Italian cuisine. Nearly everything is served with pasta! There are hundreds of pasta varieties, with spaghetti, penne, macaroni, and fettuccine among the most common. With a few exceptions, most pasta is vegan-friendly. And yes: at Thrive Market, we have dozens of gluten-free pasta options, from gluten-free spaghetti to gluten-free pasta shells. Plus, we offer tons of organic pastas with no chemicals, preservatives, or artificial flavors. Bon appetit!
