Gluten Free "Egg" Noodles - Caution

A couple months ago I was at my local Publix grocery store and spied these on the sale shelf.

They were on sale since it was right after Passover so I bought one box.  Note the price, 2 for $4.19.  That's $2.10 for the box which is a good price for anything gluten free.  They are egg noodle style, Kosher for Passover.  I love egg noodles and these were the first I have seen gluten free despite the fact that there are no actual eggs in it. Still, they had me at the egg noodle style. 

Fast forward a few weeks and I decided to make meatballs with these "egg" style noodles and a nice sauce.  Think Swedish Meatballs.  Yeah.  I prepared these noodles exactly the way the directions were written.  They were MUSH.  Complete and total MUSH!  We tossed the rest of the box. 

I am still on the lookout for gluten free egg noodles, and they can actually have eggs in them.  I have a recipe but really, I am too lazy to make my own. I've made pasta before and it is really labor intensive.
