Dietary RestrictionsGluten Free, Egg Free


  • 1 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 2/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus 1/2 teaspoon salt for boiling water
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cups fresh basil leaves, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, slivered
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 5 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • Salt
  • Parmesan cheese, for garnish


To Make the Pasta

  1. Using an electric mixer with paddle attachment, stir the brown rice flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, and salt together using the lowest setting. Stir until well combined. Then add the warm water and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.

  2. Increase speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes. Dough should have come together almost completely at this point. If not, with mixer running, add remaining olive oil gradually; all of it may not be needed. If dough is still too dry, add another tablespoon of warm water.

  3. Remove dough from bowl and form into a 1/2-inch thick disk and wrap very tightly in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes before proceeding.

  4. To form noodles: Sprinkle work surface lightly with gluten free flour. Dust the disc of dough with this flour and roll with a rolling pin until it is evenly 1/16-inch thick; dough will plump when it is cooked. Use a knife to cut into 1/4-inch wide noodles and cook immediately.

  5. To cook noodles: Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and drop in the noodles. Cook at a boil for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon so they do not stick together. When noodles are cooked to your taste, drain, and add your choice of sauce. Note: If you decide to make the homemade pesto pasta sauce, you need to save 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

To Make the Pesto Sauce

  1. Remove stems from basil. Set aside 1 cup of the basil leaves for later.

  2. Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Drop 2 cups of basil leaves into the boiling water to wilt, for about 30 seconds. Drain and wrap in a towel and tightly squeeze to remove all moisture. Keep water boiling.

  3. Place basil into a food processor and with processor running, add garlic and olive oil. Process until basil is well chopped. Scrape down bowl and add yogurt, feta cheese, and salt. Pulse until smooth.

  4. Stack remaining basil leaves and roll into a tight cigar shape, cutting crosswise into thin shreds.

  5. When sauce is made, place pasta into a large bowl and toss with the pesto sauce, adding pasta cooking water by tablespoon until the sauce is creamy and coats the pasta.

  6. Garnish with the shredded basil and serve with Parmesan cheese (if desired).


The dough should just begin to hold together without dry patches. Add liquids a little bit at a time to achieve this. It is easier to add liquid than to subtract it, and all flours work differently so different quantities of liquid will be needed.

This is an awful recipe. Just doesn't work at all. The whole thing still looked just like flour after adding the amount of liquid in the recipe. Wasted a load of ingredients trying it so you don't have to.

Has anyone used a pasta machine to roll this out? I have had success with egg based GF pasta (with enough xanthan gum) to roll carefully through the pasta machine. Wondering if theres enough hold to do it with this one. Looking forward to trying!

I've been meaning to make my own pasta for years but have never got around to it. It's too easy to go to the store and buy some, even fresh pasta. Now I am forced to make my own I will most definitely do it. The ready made gluten free pasta in the stores are so expensive I don't want to buy it so I am going to make my own and enjoy every minute of it. I am sure it is going to taste delicious.

I really liked this pasta, especially with the homemade sauce!

I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not, but this recipe tasted great! I would have never guessed it was GF!

This didn't even really taste GF, which usually has a grittiness to it. Delicious!

I was so pleasantly surprised by this dough! It really cooked up nicely, and took on the texture of a perfect al dente pasta. It holds up well to any kind of sauce, but was particularly tasty with a GF pesto. YUM.

This looks really interesting! I'll have to give it a try.

I've finally found a vegan pasta dough! Thank you so much. )
