I read today on Gluten Freeville that Hello Pasta is opening today in NYC with a gluten-free, corn-based penne option on their menu. I have never heard of Hello Pasta, so I went right over to their website. This new restaurant sounds like the fast food of the pasta world, but Hello Pasta says that all menu options are prepared when you order and not hours before. There sauces are 100% natural and there are a number of gluten-free sauce options. Their menu is also clearly labeled with a GF, V, and V.V for gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan, respectively.
Ordering is easy.
Step 1. Choose your Favorite Pasta: Obviously, my choice is the gluten-free penne
