Gluten-free menu -- or not?

Today, any Italian restaurant will not be “food-friendly” to diners who are sensitive to gluten. However, since the Olive Garden does offer a gluten-free menu (with about four or five choices — no shellfish, no soups, no pastas, and no items with sauce among them and no prices given), I suggest they really get serious about adding gluten-free food to their menu. All Olive Garden soups and all sauces contain wheat gluten. Since there are many gluten-free flours available, sauces and soups could easily be prepared gluten-free and the items on the gluten-free menu could be widely expanded. It is estimated that 1 in around 125 people are gluten intolerant — enough to warrant a significant increase in the items on the gluten-free menu.

Sicilian Scampi - Sicilian Scampi at Olive Garden

Sicilian Scampi

After requesting that any croutons, toasts, etc., be eliminated from the dish and that the shrimp be simply grilled with butter, I was dismayed when the shrimp came swimming in a gluten-laden sauce. The sauce could be prepared just as effectively with a non-gluten starch-substitute for wheat flour.
