Einkorn Pasta – A Surprising Delight

I usually tell people that whole grain pastas were never meant to be. They are slimy, don’t mix in the flavor of the sauce, and fall apart very easily on the plate.  But after eating einkorn pasta, I’m taking that all back.

I never considered that einkorn pasta could be very different than any other whole grain pasta until Jovial sent a free sample to talk about on the blog. Even then, it sat on my shelf for quite some time because I didn’t think it was worth trying.

Finally, I felt up to it one day and cooked the pasta for dinner. WOW! I loved it, and so did my entire family. I went to The Good Earth (our local health food store) and found it to be available at a great discount so I bought several more boxes.

A special dinner with guests was coming up so I decided to cook up the einkorn pasta with my special pesto  recipe.  It was a hit with our guests too!

The einkorn pasta adds a perfect flavor to the dish and it doesn’t taste grainy or feel slimy.  Instead, it was sweet, slightly nutty, rich in flavor, the texture was very desirable.  Einkorn’s nutritional qualities combined with the tasty pasta make it real winner in my book.  Nice work Jovial!

I noticed they have several types of einkorn pasta listed for sale on Amazon but it’s often out of stock so it must be popular.  Check out some of the pastas they offer:

Thanks to Jovial, I can eat whole grain pasta (and like it). Have any of you tried the einkorn pasta from Jovial? If so, leave a comment. I’m interested to know how you liked it.
