Cucina & Amore Review

You may be surprised to learn that a company you often see at the grocery store actually has many gluten free options. Cucina & Amore makes many gourmet gluten free products ranging from bruschetta to pesto to on-the-go quinoa meals. Their gluten free products (always check the label!) are produced on dedicated equipment with additional procedures in place to prevent cross contamination.

Their line of gluten free pestos and bruschettas are beautiful, classic, impressive. Serve any of these, and your guests will think you to be a master chef and beg you for the recipe. I am in love with the Pesto Alla Firenze Artichoke. It had a beautiful depth of flavor and was perfect on pasta – a lovely and interesting new option to spice up your pasta nights if you’re tired of red sauce. My only addition was a touch more salt.

Their line of ready to eat “Quinoa Meals” are quite impressive. Gluten free, vegan, non GMO and kosher, the Quinoa Meals are packaged with two containers – one holds the quinoa, the other holds the special mix-ins. It even comes with a spoon! I’m always grateful for products like these. I’d much rather eat an actual meal than have to live off of protein bars when I’m having a busy day.

Flavors include:

  • Spicy Jalapeno & Roasted Peppers
  • Mango & Jalapeno
  • Artichoke & Roasted Peppers (my personal favorite – I love anything artichoke from Cucina & Amore)
  • Basil Pesto (a little too much pesto for me – I recommend only using half of the pesto and saving the rest for a bowl of pasta later)

I will surely be purchasing these again myself and am happy to see Cucina & Amore products readily available in many stores I visit.
