Pama Liqueur - Gluten Free

Dear Quincidence,

Thank you for contacting Heaven Hill Distilleries and for your inquiry regarding our gluten-free products.

I have attached a list of our products, including PAMA, that are gluten-free. Some of these products constituent ingredients include corn, barley, rye or wheat, but are, in fact, gluten-free. The distillation of the constituent ingredients eliminates many of the elements which affect those with gluten intolerance. However, it is important to consult a health care professional to gauge your sensitivity.

Our vodka is made from 100% corn.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

Quick and Easy Hearty Vegtable stew Gluten Free - Frying pan style

1 package rice shell macaroni
1/2 baked butternut squash - normal size
3 oz cheddar, Monterrey Jack, or Pepper Jack cheese
4 -5 small zucchinis. circumference the same as maybe a half dollar

  1. Boil pasta and let drain. I always add the rice pasta to the cold unboiling water to give it a head start, I find it usually increases my perfect soft al dente pasta or to your liking. Otherwise the pasta stays starchy and firm in the middle too long.
  2. Saute the zucchini until tender but still firm. I used canola oil to saute then added some of the pasta water to the frying pan to help steam the zucchini.
  3. Be sure the baked squash is cut in 1 inch cubes or country style broken apart to bite sized pieces. I am using half a squash from my previous dish.
  4. with the zucchini softened and almost ready to serve, top with butternut squash squares, 1/4 inch chuncks or rectangle chunks of cheese.
  5. Put a lid back on for it to steam all vegetables for a bit longer in the pasta broth, while the cheese sweats and melts.
  6. Can be served in the frying pan for adults, or cut with a spatula and served in stew bowls.
  7. Top with Italian seasonings, capers, green olives, grated Parmesan cheese, or even Romano cheese.
This can also be baked if one desires, but I find the frying pan helps soften and yet leave firm the zucchini which can so easily turn to Italian vegetable soup mush.

If you are looking to make this dish with added meat, you may add a can of tunafish at the end of number 5.

Autumn snack pasta

Just a quick fix of Butternut Squash with pasta
Bake one whole butternut squash, I didn't cut and split and take out the seeds, in fact I let it keep the moisture without getting boiled.

put rice pasta in the cold water, three cups water, two cups pasta.
be sure that the past gets drained just before the seeds are coming out of a DONE squash. Otherwise the pasta gets dried out.

So I put a slit in a butternut squash, put a spaghetti squash with a little slit, and baked them 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
When I split open and gutted the squash it was super beautiful.

The pasta servered into a bowl, then I just scoop country bite sized pieces from the shell. Just take a soup spoon, scoop out bite sized pieces right ontop of the pasta.
Then drizzle and dollop two generous tablespoons (again you can use the same soup spoon if you want) of sunflower butter onto the top.

Creamy white rice pasta
Bright autumn orange baked orange butternut squash
Rich suede brown nutbutter

if you need a tablespoon of whipped butter or cream over the pasta first that is fine, but I found that the sunbutter a great sauce.
