What kind of pasta do you buy and recommend? I am a Barilla fan with DelVerde being a close second. I had a terrible experience last night with DeCecco. The market was out of Barilla angel hair so I bought DeCecco cappellini. I'm not opposed to trying new things and what's the harm really? Well 2 minutes into cooking this cappellini was already mushy and not at all al dente! I'm so angry. I've tried other brands too. San Giorgio doesn't taste very good, and other brands taste too floury. I will admit that Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti is insanely good but I'm a little suspicious of a stuffed pasta that can sit in my fridge for 6 weeks and I vow not to buy them again. I am THIS close to making my own pasta.
