    dry pasta

    I went to the supermarket just now to get some cough suppressant and figured I'd grab some dried pasta. I always get Barilla because out of the brands I've tried (not too terribly many) that's what I've liked the best. Anyway, I picked up some mini penne, amongst others and went to check out. The lady looked at my pile of boxes and happily started chanting "mini panini, mini panini, mini panini..." I didn't know what to say, so I just smiled back. She must have seen something in my expression because she apologized saying, "Sorry. I just love the way that sounds! Mini panini! Mini panini! Mini panini!"

    Anyway, what's your favorite, easily obtainable dry pasta brand?

    I'm with you, Barilla for dry pasta. When I went to Rome awhile back a lot of restaurants were using it and it occupies the shelves at the grocery stores there and most of my Italian friends from Italy, will only buy that brand. Obviously it isn't the same as fresh pasta but, they are two different animals, one silky and smooth and the other toothsome and hardy.

    I think that Delverde pasta is the best. I find it absorbs sauce well and stays al dente.

    +1 to De Cecco. I lke Barilla, but personally prefer De Cecco. But De Cecco can be up to 3x more expensive than Barilla. Barilla, on sale, is so inexpensive.

    I'm not sure of the brand but Whole Foods carries a dry pasta that comes in a heavy brown paper package. Very good stuff but pretty darn pricy.
