And now the review:
Can I just say- YUMMY.
When mixed with sauce, we didn't notice a taste difference at all.
When nibbled at out of the colander, the taste was different- we can't really think of how, but, we really enjoyed it just kept going back here and there for a piece of spaghetti.
We weren't sure what to expect with the Smart Grain Pasta and were really pleased that we can now get the benefits of a healthier pasta without having that texture/taste of whole wheat that we're not fans of.
The one thing we will do though and this is just a personal preference is buy the thin spaghetti rather than the regular- again, that's just what we prefer. Taste was really, really good.
A bit about Ronzoni Smart Taste from the site:
RONZONI® SMART TASTE™ is a new member of the New World Pasta family of brands. What's so special about RONZONI SMART TASTE? It's the first white pasta to be enriched with Fiber, Calcium and Vitamin D-- and lots of it. RONZONI SMART TASTE is an excellent source of Fiber and contains Calcium and Vitamin D equal to an eight-ounce glass of milk. Studies show that many diets are lacking in these three important nutrients. Plus, RONZONI SMART TASTE is lower in calories and fat than traditional pasta. That means RONZONI SMART TASTE is the same great taste -- the smart taste --your family loves but with greater nutritional value.
Look for these seven delicious varieties:
- Thin Spaghetti
- Penne Rigate
- Angel Hair
- Extra Wide Noodles
