Takes a L-O-N-G time to thicken.
I have tried **Pasta Roni** twice now. The first time I tried it I wasn't impressed so, I decided to try it again. I followed the box directions exactly. They were simple to read and understand: In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil the water, milk and butter. Then add the pasta and seasonings. Boil 4-5 minutes. Then, comes the kicker. "Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 minutes to thicken." Herein, lies the problem. It takes forever for it to thicken. I tried my second box of Pasta Roni tonight. We kept waiting for the thickening to happen. We kept watching- and watching, stirring- and stirring. We ate our meal and the pasta was beginning to thicken a little [or maybe we just wanted to]. It wasn't until I started cleaning up that I noticed the Pasta Roni had finally thickened! **Bottomline:** It was too long of a wait for the sauce to thicken. I won't buy this again.****
