This is a 20-minute recipe for Gluten-Free Tomato and Feta Pasta. This recipe is all about fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, herbs, feta cheese and fresh parsley, making this Italian dish exceptionally flavorful.

What we love about this tomato and feta pasta is, all you need is only five fresh ingredients plus herbs and salt.

The simplicity of this dish is what makes it so delicious, especially the saltiness of feta cheese. The best part, all you need is 20 minutes from start to the table.

What to serve with tomato and feta pasta?

Firstly, this Italian gluten-free pasta dish can be served as a main. It is hearty and most satisfying. You can add a salad, or our favourite side the gluten-free cheese and garlic flatbread. Just thinking about this makes me want to eat now.

If you are serving the pasta as a side, there are many options. The way I like to serve this tomato, and feta pasta dish is with Healthy Coconut Pesto Salmon. However, southern fried chicken and pork tenderloin will make this pasta dish shine every time.

Best gluten-free pasta.

We often get asked which is our favourite gluten-free pasta. I must admit there are many choices of gluten-free pasta on the market. Here is our list starting from our favourites. Just to be clear, these are my choices and what is most readily available where I live, beautiful Vancouver in British Columbia.

Tinkyadda Pasta Joy → white rice pasta (3 g protein per serving) This is my favourite gluten-free pasta because it tastes just like real pasta. There is no fiber in this pasta, but you can always add more veggies to get the fiber you need.

Andean Dream Pasta → blend of organic rice and quinoa (3 g fiber and 5 g protein per serving) The blend of organic rice and quinoa makes this a healthier pasta. The texture is good, and it tastes good.

Bionaturae Organic Spaghetti → Organic blend of rice, potato starch, rice starch, organic soy flour (5 g of protein and 1 g fiber per serving) This pasta has added potato starch and soy flour. It tastes good, but for those that are soy intolerant this pasta will not work

Lundberg Organic Brown Rice Pasta (4 g fiber and 4 g protein per serving) this pasta has 4 g of fiber per serving, which is a fair amount. If you are looking for pasta with higher fiber content, this brown rice pasta may be for you. For me, I prefer the flavour and texture of the white rice pasta. Plus, this pasta takes longer to cook and seems to have more starch. (you can find this pasta at Wholefoods)

Explore Cuisine Organic Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine (11g fiber and 22 g protein per serving) this pasta is excellent for a plant-based diet because it includes plant-based protein. This pasta is good for someone that is following a vegan diet. It has the highest fiber and protein content per serving

Ancient Harvest Pasta → Blend of organic corn flour and organic quinoa flour (4 g fiber and 4 g protein per serving) If you are looking for gluten-free penne pasta, this may be the right choice. This pasta is excellent in salads and gluten free casseroles.

I don’t like gluten-free pasta that is made only with corn. First, I don’t like the texture, it is too grainy, and I don’t like the flavour. It tastes like corn and overpowers the flavours of sauces. If you overcook corn pasta even slightly, it becomes mushy.

Lastly, gluten-free pasta has the best texture when cooked al dente. Unless you shock the pasta in ice water after cooking, it will soften more after you drained it. So always cook the pasta until it is still slightly firm.
