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.
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!

  1. 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 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.

      what a great deal! i don't think that i've seen that "paone" brand.

      i wonder what store here in the d.c area is comparable or affiliated with fairway.

      my latest "deal" was 50ยข/# barilla 'spaghetti rigati' at harris teeter. i think that the store was discontinuing it.

    2. I love the Colavita nests too!! I thought there was something wrong with me at first - it doesn't look terribly special, but it tastes great. I had to buy it again to make sure it wasn't just me being pasta-hungry that day. And it's still good! What a great find :)

        looks like nothing special at all -- you are right.

      2. We like the Divella fettuccine (egg noodles) best among the generally available brands. Not cheap, though!
