OK Wilson now follow me over to the stove!

I buy Imported Capellini, spaghetti etc.. I have found the Barilla pasta stands up very well when cooked Al dente (with just a semi-firm bite to it). Boil 1 lb in a min. of 5 qts. of water with salt added. By salting the water and adding the pasta the salt goes into the pasta while boiling, adding taste. I undercook all pasta inc. Angel Hair by 2 mins. (according to the package directions). Before draining take out 1 c of the pasta cooking water. Drain DO NOT RINSE PASTA OFF, YOUR SAUCE CANNOT ADHERE TO THE PASTA. Toss pasta in a bowl with the cup of pasta water, which contains the starch from the cooked pasta, add pasta back into a sauce pan and add your sauce stirring an additional minute. Comes out perfect every time. kels

You guys are too funny-love Barilla but the best is De Cecco-unfortunately very limited availability here.

DKVA I absolutely agree with you about DeCecco pasta being far superior, but I cannot justify paying $3.69 to $4.00 a lb for dried Imported macaroni in The Fresh Market when I can get Imported Barilla for $1.00 at Lowe's Foods.

Here is Amazon. If you are a prime member (free shipping) its $11.42 for five (5) 16 oz boxes of Capellini (on the way to me know after three mouse clicks).

I hear you Kelsie as far as the price. Last month Walmart had De Cecco penne for $2.58 a box. Little did I know it was to be short lived-should have bought a case!

Last Spring Sam's Club had a one time deal 6-1 lb boxes of DC Penne for $4.48. What a steal I bout 3 boxes of 18 total. They are all gone now.
