Pasta, Elbows, Whole Grain Brown Rice

This is an excellent pasta for people who want gluten-free grain products. The ingredients are: stone-ground brown rice, rice bran, and water.  The cooking instructions were somewhat different than we’ve seen for whole wheat pasta: place in 4 quarts of boiling water, with 1 tbsp. salt (it cooks just as well without the salt), and cook for about 15 minutes; or let it boil for 2 minutes; cover, turn off the heat, and let stand for 20 minutes. The whole grain brown rice elbows cooked to a very nice al dente texture, and can be used with any sauce, in stir-fries, or in soups.  We could not find a complete nutrition list, but believe that the cooked whole grain brown rice pasta should be similar to cooked brown rice.
