Whole Wheat Pasta Tasting

May 6, 2017

A little while ago, a couple friends and I decided to buy as many types of whole wheat pasta as we could and see how they compared. I didn’t expect any to be quite as tasty as regular pasta, but one of them was surprisingly good. The hands-down winner was:


Delallo 100% Whole Wheat pasta tasted almost the same as regular pasta. I’ve started buying their gemelli to use in pasta with pesto, potatoes and green beans. It’s available at Martin’s locally, and also at Whole Foods.

Second place went to Gia Russa.


The rest of them were about the same for taste and texture, except for Ronzoni’s which was a little grittier. I bought that one because of an America’s Test Kitchen review…from about 10 years ago. Although we tried the 100% whole wheat one, not the Whole Wheat Blend that they recommended. So, maybe I’ll have to give it one more try.


Next tastings: black tea and dark chocolate. Who’s in? 🙂
