Gluten free Barilla is made with rice and corn, giving it a lovely light golden color when cooked. It makes a nice canvas for the red onions and other veggies. The flavor is really nice, as well. The combination of sweet, roasted tomato and the savory onion is wonderful.The toasted pine nuts give it a crunchy finish. Very, very good!

This recipe is so good - super flavorful and you honestly would not know it is gluten free. I served it to friends at a dinner party, did not tell them it was gluten free, and they were shocked to hear at the end! The roasted tomatoes and caramelized onions add nice, sweet flavor that contrasts well with the nutty cheese. Definitely recommend making this.

I really enjoyed this recipe! It has a clean and fresh flavor that is highlighted by the yummy pine nuts! I made a half recipe, but next time I'll have to make the whole thing! Thanks, Barilla!

Excellent flavor and very easy. The extra cup of cooking liquid made it watery but did not affect the flavor. Fresh parsley gave it a nice zing.
