What is your favorite pasta brand?

I've been a Barilla fan for years, mostly because it reheats without turning to mush. But for elbows I prefer Creamettes, and I recently bought DaVinci linguini which I liked better than Barilla. Of course my favorite is when my husband makes fetuccini from scratch, and I refuse to buy any fetucchini (how do you spell that, anyway) just to force him to make it for me a few times a year!

The double "c" in Italian denotes "ch" so, no "h" is needed.

I like Barilla.

Barrilla, TJ's and an imported Italian brand (I don't remember name) I get at the farm. I also get Ronzoni sometimes.

We had been buying Barilla too. Then SO wanted low carb pasta so we now use Dreamfields for the most part. It's fine.

In Italian, a 'c' followed by an 'i' is pronounced as a 'ch'. Think DaVinci.

I think both are right - "cc" and "c" followed by "i" produce the "ch" sound.

My favorite is what I make in my own kitchen. Would that be "Choppers?" when I buy pasta I usually get Barilla pasta. I prefer multi grain or whole wheat pasta.
