I love the idea of getting a whole vegetable serving in every four ounces of this spaghetti. Yes, I said every four ounces, and who stops at four ounces of spaghetti? The big question when I bought it was what is it going to taste like?
My grandson is a very picky eater and has a highly effective built-in vegetable detector as well. I really have to be sneaky with the veggies. He loves this spaghetti. Absolutely ate every last strand on his plate. We sneaked some pureed carrots into the sauce, too. Ha. Double down.
What I love about the Hidden Veggie Spaghetti is the firmness. I don't necessarily like al dente pasta, but I don't like it mushy, either. This pasta, almost no matter how long you cook it, stays at the perfect level of firmness for me. It has its own subtle flavor, but only compliments the three kinds of sauce I have used on it so far: Marinara, Putenesca and Alfredo. I think even with just a little garlic butter sauce it would be outstanding. Oh, and leftovers? Tasted as good as the first time around. I think the firm consistency keeps the spaghetti from wicking up all the sauce.
