Product Description: Organic spaghetti pasta from the Garofalo pasta brand. I purchased several one-pound packages of this spaghetti pasta after finding it on sale (for roughly 85 cents per pound) while doing some routine shopping at Costco last month. We have used this product on three or four different occasions since purchasing it.
Review of Garofalo Organic Spaghetti Pasta
I purchased this at Costco last month. Read to find out what I thought of it.
One thing we go through a lot of in our house is pasta. And, in particular, we seem to go through spaghetti pasta the most. As a result of that, I'm always looking for a great deal on it.
Last month, we were doing some other shopping at Costco and noticed, if purchased in bulk, we could buy one-pound packages of Garofalo Organic Spaghetti Pasta for roughly 85 cents per package. Since that was roughly a 15-cent savings over what we normally find (non-organic) pasta at our regular grocery stores, we decided to give it a try. Overall, I have to say I was happy with this purchase.
Since we do go through so much pasta, we've had an opportunity to try dozens of brands. Most taste pretty much the same. But, there are some out there that just aren't as good. As a result of this, when I buy any brand of pasta, my main goal is to find one, whether it's organic, whole wheat or otherwise, that at least meets the same quality standards as most other brands. This one both met that expectation and, in some ways exceeded it.
One thing, in particular, I noticed about this brand when making it is it doesn't clump together like many other brands. This has always been a bit pet peeve of mine because it is something that simply should not happen, especially when we go through the effort of adding olive oil to help prevent it, and it makes serving the spaghetti much more difficult.
Also, unlike many bargain pasta brands, this spaghetti pasta doesn't turn the water milky white when it is being cooked. Again, that is something I do appreciate because there is something that is simply unappetizing about milky-white pasta water.
As far as taste goes, this spaghetti pasta definitely passed the test. I don't know if I can honestly say there is something that really stands out about it when compared to other, non-organic, brands. But, I had no complaints and my family seems to enjoy it. At least at the low price I paid for this product, that is good enough for me.
