REVIEW:

I love pasta, and I love carbs. I am pretty sure they are bad for my waist line – but I can’t help it.  Spaghetti is a staple meal at our house.  It’s cheap, fast, and loved by all.  I’ve tried whole wheat pasta in the past in attempt to make the meal healthier for us all, But I have never been able to find wheat pasta that has even tasted remotely good.  I was convinced that wheat pasta with good texture and good taste did not exist. I kept a hopeful and open mind when trying Mara’s whole wheat pasta.  I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised.  Every once and a while you come across a product that you feel will truly improve your life – and this pasta is it!

I feel one of the major downfalls to wheat pasta is their gummy texture. Mara’s texture is very close to white pasta. It does have a little bit of a different flavor than white pasta, you can definitely taste the wheat flavor, but I find the flavor better than most wheat pasta.  I put the pasta to the true test – I fed it to my family.  In the past, my kids hardly ate their spaghetti when I used wheat pasta. With Mara’s they asked for seconds!  I was very interested to hear my husband’s reaction as he hates wheat pasta, and anything else with remotely healthy properties.  His reaction was that it was good – not as good as white pasta – but close.  I think if I served this pasta every time, my family would adapt very well, and not even miss white pasta.

I like the health benefits of this pasta. One serving contains over 25% of your daily-recommended fiber. So not only is this pasta delicious, it is definitely more nutritious as well. I think this pasta is going to become a staple in my pantry, and part of our family meals for years to come!
