Win-It-Wednesday: SamMills Gluten-Free Pasta

It’s the start of the New Year and many folks are looking for new and exciting budget-friendly dinner ideas. One of my favorite ways to make a delicious dinner-on-a-budget is by using gluten-free pastas made by SamMills.

SamMill’s Pastas are made from corn. They are available in most grocery stores and come in tons of different pasta shapes… some of my favorite include Penne Rigate, Tubetti, Lasagna Corte, and Bucatini.

The SamMills Pastas are also made of 100% Natural Ingredients, are free of dairy, eggs and gluten, and are low-glycemic, GMO Free and Kosher Pave. I also love that most of pastas cook-up in about 10 minutes, so dinner can be served in a jiff.

And if you are looking for some inspiring gluten-free pasta dishes to start off this New Year check out some of our favorite pasta recipes on

    I’m always a sucker for spaghetti but penne comes in as a close second. In summer I like the shells for pasta salad…….

  2. Neda Says:

    I mostly mix different patterns together! Say spaghetti + ziti + penne!

  3. camille ortiz Says:

    I think the noodles or the wavy noodles would be awesome! We haven’t had noodles since we had to go Gluten Free a few years ago! I’m imagining the recipes now!

  4. Chere Housefield Says:

    Ducks. The wife of a fellow in my office is allergic to wheat. She doesn’t care for the rice pasta but really likes Sam Mills pasta. He brought in some pasta salad she had made with the Ducks and it looked really neat. The rice pasta gets kind of hard, brittle, when it gets cold but he says the texture of the Sam Mills Ducks is like regular pasta. I went out and got some but haven’t tried them yet. Looking forward to it.

  5. Laura Says:

    I’d like to try the Lasagna Corte.

  6. LaTanya Says:

    the traditional penne

  7. Benjamin Ortiz Says:

    My wife loves pasta, but since we cook GF and have limited choices at the local grocery store we don’t prepare it often enough for her wishes. I’ve never seen this brand before. I love the name (pasta of gold!) I’d love to try the Penne.

  8. Forress Says:

    I would love to try any of them. But if I can only choose one I think it would have to be the Lasagna Corti.

  9. Lyne Lacroix Says:

    Lasagna Corte would be fantastic for me. I have not found any Lasagna noodle yet to make my mother’s fabulous homemade recipe. That would be great for our family as we have 4 people with celiac disease.

  10. Tawny Says:

    The lasagna corti looks best to me. I’ve been looking unsuccessfully for non-wheat lasagna, and I like that this isn’t huge noodles like lasagna usually is.

  11. Kelsea nixon Says:

    Lasagna Corti:)

  12. Susan M Says:

    Nice selection of pasta. They all look good, but I would like to try the wavy noodles because most brands offered in the stores do not have a noodle option.

  13. Eileen Sanders Says:

    The Lasagna Corti looks the best to me.

  14. Rochelle Says:

    We’ve had their penne before & liked it. I’ve never seen this brand’s Bucatini, Quadrati or Lasagna Corti in stores, but would be very interested in trying them!
    We’re rather new to being Gluten-free, and finding it a bit challenging, especially my 8-year-old son, whose conditions started us on this journey. Being of Italian descent, pasta used to be a staple of our diet and a go-to a few nights a week. Finding a pasta with a decent texture is important to us.

  15. Nyesha Says:

    Thanks very much for making this offer! The penne looks best to me but I have never tried bucatini & would be interested in doing so. I would probably have it with pesto as you suggest. I love pesto.

  16. elaine Says:

    Dairy and egg free!!!!…….. gluten free????
    Wow, and flavored with peppers?????
    Wow, I am excited, break out the apron!!!!!

  17. Sharon Says:

    I think the penne pasta sounds best to me!

  18. Sandra Bright Says:

    I want to try them all but the blackened red pepper and chicken pasta salad sounds the best.

  19. Sue Says:

    I love a good penne! I like the versatileness of this pasta!

  20. Deb Gowlland Says:

    Would love to try the Penne! 🙂

  21. Margoka Says:

    I would like to try the adventurous Quadrati.

  22. Sharlene Says:

    I would love to have the wavy noodles (lasagna Corti)! I havent seen that kind of gluten free noodle before!

  23. julie Says:

    I would like the snails!

  24. Lyne Lacroix Says:

    I am really glad that more and more companies are creating gluten free products. Thank you Sammills for making our lives a little easier.

  25. Neda Says:

    I’ll go w/ the Lasagna! Generally made much less often, so a better change in routine!

  26. Eileen Sanders Says:

    The Penne sounds good.

  27. julie Says:

    I would try the lasagna corti

  28. Susan M Says:

    I would like to try the “Snails.” Interesting name for a pasta!

  29. Kim Pennington Says:

    I have already had some of their delicious pasta and would love to try try the lasagna corti.

  30. cindy w. Says:

    I have never tried the Bucatini – so would love to try that.

  31. Sue Says:

    I would use any of these pastas to make the soup on this email! Yummmm!

  32. Christina Says:

    I love the shells!

  33. TXEdie Says:

    I love pasta — gluten-free corn pasta is the best — and the Tubetti is a new variety that I’ve never seen offered in G-F. I am imagining it as a mac n’ cheese with the sauce filling those little tubes. Yum.

  34. sheila Says:

    wavy noodles…lasagna corte. 🙂

  35. Teresa Earp Says:

    I would definitely want noodles: either the square of wavy. I haven’t had these types of noodles since going gluten free.

  36. Terri Says:

    Would love to try any of them. I love pasta.

  37. Dana Matthews Says:

    Penne for me!

  38. Lyne Lacroix Says:

    My favorite would be Lasagna Corte noodle which I could use to make my mother’s homemade lasagna.

  39. Venessa F. Says:

    I would love to try the bucatini! I’ve never seen a gluten free of this type, & haven’t eaten bucatini since prior to finding out I need to be gluten free. Thanks for this giveaway!

  40. Kim L Says:

    I love a Penne Pasta…I like a hearty pasta

  41. Belle Gayer Says:

    I’m not sure about corn, but I am sure wheat doesn’t agree with me. I’d like to try the ziti.

  42. Cilyn Myers Says:

    I’d love to have lasagna again, so the lasagna corte sounds great!

  43. Misty Says:

    The wavy noodles look like a fun way to serve noodles with any sauce! I love SamMills pasta because they hold their shape very well!

  44. esther fraser Says:

    I have tried this brand and it is VERY delicious – and I love the bucatini – the sauce fills the holes – really great for mac and cheese!

  45. sherry bishop Says:

    All of them look good ! I love all kinds of pasta !

  46. Auburn Says:

    Spaghetti has always been my favorite since I was a little girl:)

  47. Julie Says:

    I like the penne as sauce sticks better to the pasta!

  48. Danijela Says:

    Traditional spaghetti works best for me.

  49. Cilyn Myers Says:

    I love pasta and the kind made with corn is the best! I like penne best…

  50. Kim L Says:

    i love penne
