SO and I have been using Dreamfields for a while and find it to be a good substitute. I'm not a connoisseur, but I don't detect a difference. We've used mostly spaghetti along with some penne rigate and elbows.

I think Dreamfields and Ronzoni Healthy Harvest are good. I prefer them over whole wheat pasta. It sounds funny but my biggest gripe is the lack of interesting shapes. I buy them when they are on sale or I have a double coupon.

Barilla, De Cecco, Voiello, but I'm Italian so I'm always trying different brands, since we have hundreds of them, from big corporations to small local businesses.
Furthermore we have endless pasta shapes, and not all of the producers make them all, so sometimes you cannot buy your favorite brand if you're looking for a specific pasta type.

The new shop-rite on main st in lodi? I don't usually shop at that one.

I also like this brand. The spinach tagliatelle is wonderful. I usually get it at the farm I go to.

Barilla

Thanks for the informative post.

Barilla for me, and when time permits, home made pasta in the pasta machine.

Kind regards.

Margi.
