Pros: Organic, nice and thick, tasty
So to be fair, the only Montebello Artisan Organic Pasta I've tried is the orecchiette. Now...I'll be honest. I was not at all familiar with the term "orecchiette" before this pasta. I'd just called it....shell noodles. That's basically what these are (although, I guess they're more dome like than shell like...but I digress).
In any case, they are delicious. I like the fact that this pasta is pretty thick. It makes your meal seem much more substantial. Taste is excellent. And it's organic. I didn't follow the instructions (not really at all) the second time I cooked this pasta, so some of it stuck together a little, but that was an operator error, I think. Either way, it all got cooked through. Some bits were just a tad more al dente than others...but it tastes great both ways.
I don't recall exactly what I paid for the 16 ounce package...but I'm pretty sure I can safely say I paid more than the generic pasta brands. I'm okay with that though. It was quality. And I'd definitely buy it and eat it again.
