RE: Favorite store bought pasta?

I like Buitoni pasta for a national brand, and it is in the refrigerator section, but I make it more often than I buy it. If I buy it, I usually end up freezing it, and I have about three packages in the freezer at the moment.

If you can find local brands, they are usually fresher. I find them at Italian Delis, Surfas (restaurant supply), and Farmers' Markets.


RE: Favorite store bought pasta?

The only refrigerated "pasta" that I've tried are those noodles that aren't really pasta. Low cal, low carb, etc. Nasty slimy things, definitely do NOT buy those...


RE: Favorite store bought pasta?

Most pasta taste the same. For me, it's all up to how you cook them.

I do buy from Homegoods. Their "designer" pasta is fun for when you have guests.

RE: Favorite store bought pasta?

It is rare that a regular grocery will have more than one or two choices of fresh or fresh/frozen. Depends on your location but check or call local italian markets.
We pantry a few dried pastas of various qualities for quick meals, but for fresh we make our own.
I'd rather not pay a premium price for fresh when it is so simple to make. Dh made a batch last night so easily i'm not sure why we don't make it more often.
