I love the Colavita brand Pappardelle Nests pasta
I want to give you home cooks a heads up on this product. The texture of this pasta is silken. We just love it! Here is a photo of the bag, but the nests look jumbled. http://www.colavita.com/store/index.c...
They are not, in fact, jumbled or stuck together by any means. There are about 9 nests in that bag, which is a good size -- maybe 8x12.
I recommend that you try it, and see what you think!
I've used Colavita pasta products in the past with success. Generally, the different types of pasta vary in the 1.89-2.49 price range at my area markets......Barilla is always cheaper and DeCecco is comparable in price....my normal brands of purchase. I'll have to try the Parpardelle next time I make a meat ragout.
My latest find is at my local Fairway Market. My last three shopping excursions there has Paone Pasta Products, imported from Italy, at only .50 cents per pound package.
We like the Divella fettuccine (egg noodles) best among the generally available brands. Not cheap, though!
