We were invited to submit a unique recipe with Catelli’s Gluten Free Pasta for a contest and so I turned to my dad and asked him if we could make one of our family recipes – but brighten it up a bit with healthier options. Filipino food is normally not very healthy at all, for the most part I like switching up my meats in our recipes (pork to chicken for example) or using less soy sauce or reduced sodium soy sauce.

Catelli’s Gluten Free Pasta is made from a unique four-grain blend of white rice, brown rice, corn and quinoa – right now it’s available in four different types of pasta: spaghetti, fusilli, penne and macaroni. It’s a perfect option for those who have gluten sensitivities.


In any case, my dad and I updated one of his favourite, easy to make recipes and we wanted to share it with you! Normally this is called “Pancit Bihon” (pun-sit bee-hon) which is literally stir fry noodles, Filipino style! I decided that if my dad and I win the Catelli contest, I’m going to take him to Hawaii for his 70th birthday next year! Check out the recipe below!
