Same here, except I haven't tried Barilla. I buy whole grain pasta from Felicetti or Bio Naturae. They are both imported from Italy, organic, and really yummy.

My favorites are Rustichella d'Abruzzo and Setaro.

taxy, bio naturae is really good for whole wheat pasta. you almost can't tell that it's whole wheat.

Barilla is my preferred pasta, but if DeCecco is on sale, I'll get that ... it's very good. I recently tried Lydia's and it was very good too. It's taste and texture is very similar to DeCecco.

I like it better than white flour pasta. It is soooo yummy.

Has anyone tried the low carb pastas? How do they compare?
