  • 450 g Nnova Rice Macaroni or Small Shells

For the Vinaigrette:

  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 spoon of Dijon mustard
  • 75 ml red wine vinegar
  • 30 ml balsamic vinegar
  • 15 ml water
  • 100 ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a bowl add the minced garlic, Dijon mustard, vinegars, water, olive oil and mix well and beat until smooth.

  • Add salt and pepper and put it in the fridge during 4 hours.

Ingredients Check:

Balsamic vinegar. Balsamic vinegar starts out as grapes and is aged in casks made from wood. There's a very small possibility that the paste used to seal those casks (generally wheat or rye flour) could contaminate a batch of balsamic vinegar, but only those most sensitive to trace gluten would notice (I'm talking far less than 1 percent of everyone who reacts to gluten).

Otherwise, balsamic vinegar should be safe on the gluten-free diet.
