Chicken Pasta- Jovial Review

Here is the dinner I threw together last week and it turned out great!  Jovial was so great to send us some pasta  and cookies to try and review their product.   I had an idea what I wanted to make, but this turned out really good and it was super easy!  It has really been a while since I have tried a new pasta.  This was one of the things I had trouble with when we went gluten free.  I had tried several different brands and didn’t have much luck until…..

We have been using the same pasta for about the last year and a half.  My theory…if it’s not broke, don’t fix it?  Ha!  Well, I am happy to say that we now have options!  I was very pleased with the Jovial pasta.  It is about the same in price as what we are accustomed to.

Jovial Pasta is

100% organic gluten free

Firm texture – does not get mushy

Made only with brown rice flour

No added starches or additives

Made in a dedicated gluten free facility

Where to find locally– Organic Harvest is carrying their pasta and cookies and Whole Foods, last I was there had a nice selection of their cookies, but no pasta.


1 Box Jovial penne pasta

1lb boneless, skinless chicken, sliced or cubed

1 large red pepper

2 cups spinach

1 pkg. Philadelphia Cooking Creme, Italian Cheese and Herb

Cook pasta according to package directions.  In separate pan cook chicken and red peppers  in a few tablespoons of olive oil until chicken is done.  Add spinach.  Then add the drained pasta and toss with the cooking creme.  Enjoy!


This is the display I found at Whole Foods! They are currently on sale for $3.49/box.

We were sent the fig filled gluten free cookies.  They were really good.   Very fresh tasting.  They were light, not overly sweet, but sweet enough.  Individually wrapped 2 pk.  The cookies held together nicely.  They were not crumbly or hard.  My daughter was never a big fig newton fan, but she really has enjoyed these cookies.  I plan to try some of the other flavors as well.  I like they are individually wrapped.  Makes for a quick grab on the go!

If you have tried any Jovial products, let me know what you think!
