I like Del Verde when I am not pinching my pennies. I also like Barilla because it reheats better than most other pasta. Most of the time though I am pinching my pennies and use AnnA by Cento foods it is imported and often on sale in my area for 99 cents a pound.

I usually get my pasta at TJ's, but if Ronzoni is on sale I get that, usually bogo, so like 75 cents a pound.

Barilla, Gia Russo (excellent whole wheat pasta), Creamettes when available (Durham semolina pasta of excellent quality...Minnesota and North Dakota product I believe)

make my own paparadelle (can't spell it, though) :)

ronzoni for everyday pasta, dececco or delle verde when i go to my local italian deli and remember to buy it.

i also will buy artisnal pasta for things like squid ink, orrechiete, or gnocchi. there's a place across town that makes excellent artisnal pastas and bread called "vitamias".

it's a tiny place in a crappy section of town that gained a lot of fame when it was mentioned on "the sopranos". thankfully the uproar has died down since and it's back to normal. www.vitamias.com

I've been buying Barilla for a few years and like it a lot for the same reasons that others have already mentioned. Andy, I have seen Dreamfields. Can you tell me how it compares to Barilla?

Has anyone tried the pasta made from Jerusalem artichoke flour? I'd like to find low carb pasta that is yummy!
