With so many pastas on the market, it's sometimes overwhelming trying to find the best. Barilla whole gran pasta, I tell you, is the best. The amount per box is generous, to say the least-- enough to serve a whole family, for sure. You may even have leftovers! And the price is definitely something to brag about. Normally healthy food options are marked up considerably, but not Barilla whole grain pasta. On several occasions, in fact, I've found it sold for less than regular pasta. Yes, you read that correct, LESS! That alone is enough to sell me; what about you? But wait! There's more. The reason that I chose Barilla whole grain pasta and chose to never return to the more pricey, slightly less healthy alternative pastas, is this-- the taste. Don't get me wrong-- I love mixing a concoction of fresh vegetables and a homemade sauce into these noodles, but you don't have to. They are so delicious that you can eat them alone, just plain noodles-- and I do! In my household, it's not out of the ordinary to have Barilla whole grain pasta for dinner, and that's it. Would I recommend this to a friend? I would recommend this to the world. With Barilla whole grain pasta, you simply can't go wrong. Enjoy.
