The large shell variety is probably the most basic type of pasta you can get in these packages. And it's got the most practical use in the dishes that I make. While I generally use rigatoni for a lot of my pasta dishes, these can be used for a lot more of what I make and more.
So I like this for the versatility. Also the flavor is just as good as the rigatoni turns out. I have no complaints about the flavor whatsoever.
The prices is just about right too. With a coupon, it was about $1.20. Considering I can make three or four meals out of this, that's rather good value. And these aren't the bargain basement pasta shells either, as far as the quality is concerned, which is nice.
Overall, I'd give them recommend. They do exactly what I wanted a pasta product to do.
Cook the whole pound box and then get creative with precooked pasta. Quick and tasty variations. Here's my fav's.
Calamari Pasta Salad
Skillet cook frozen (not breaded) calamari in oil spray or broil. Chill after cooking.
Mix equal parts of calamari, cubed white cheese (mozzarella, Swiss, provolone, or feta), diced celery, diced red or yellow bell pepper (optional), frozen peas (uncooked-just rinsed). Mix in precooked pasta in an equal part to the entire mix of prior ingredients. Add just enough mayo to make it a wet consistency. Allow to chill and marinate prior to serving. Healthy hint: Use light or fat-free mayo for a lighter/healthier good salad.
The chew textures are delightful.
Would work with any pre-cooked and chilled fish food, shrimp, tilapia, salmon, even tuna.
Sun-dried tomato cheesy-mac
Microwave melt a half-inch slice of Velveeta of choice with ¼ cup sund-ried tomato bits. Then stir in as much pasta as you can to your desired pasta/cheese consistence. ReNuke-heat for about 20 seconds and just try to refrain from eating this entire bowl of mac & cheese.
Heat a can of ready-made soup and add precooked Ditalini in equal parts.
Super with Hormel Chili; Campbell's Chunky; or Progresso Clam Chowder. For kids try chicken noodle or plain-old tomato. Even add to your own homemade soup, of course.
It's been rumored you can even top off pasta with a favorite pasta sauce.
It cooks up perfectly every time, no matter which type I cook.
It never gets mushy and it keeps a nice texture and structure.
Buying the bulk packages here makes life easier and I can stock up on various pasta. I like to always have several types on hand.
You can pretty much always find one kind or another that the price comes out to a dollar or under per box and that works out fine for me because that is what I would pay at the grocery store. I wouldn't buy any of them if they're over a dollar per box, except for the Cellentani - I pay a little more for that one because I can't get it in local stores anyway.
We probably eat way too much pasta and starches in general in our house, but...yummm.
This brand is great for hot pasta, as well as cold pasta salads. Everything keeps a nice firm structure - it's perfect.
