Pasta Post

Tagliatelle. That's all I ask. I have the most favored and flavored bolognese recipe but I got no tagliatelle. I've looked in every grocery and some specialty stores. So far I've turned up spinach tagliatelle at some (but not all) HEB stores. I've served my creation twice to much devotion with the green stuff, but I truly would like to see the bolognese/white pasta contrast. I know I can serve other weight lifting pasta like Pappardelle, which I find everywhere, but now I'm on a mission. If you've found it in Our Town, please provide the coordinates. Thanks.

    I find this listing on Phoenicia's website:

    638982000758 ITALIA TAGLIAT.BLK.250GR-12/CS

    LINK: http://www.phoeniciafoods.com/pasta.html

    Looks promising.

    If I get over there today, I will verify.

      Back from Phoenicia with a 250gm package of tagliatelle.

      HOWEVER, while they have four varieties of this brand, (Italia In Tavola), they do not have a "plain white" variety. They have: Tagliatelle with mushroom, (the "whitest and the one I purchased, but it is a light caramel color ), green spinach, brownish truffle (!), and black squid ink.

        Okay, I used the handy Google converter, and this is about 1/2 pound? Thanks for the recon!

          I've neglected to mention that I wandered over to Phoenicia and snapped up some of the mushroom tagliatelle. Now I just need to find time to make the bolognese sauce. I still find it odd that there's no plain pasta around...Thanks for the tip!

              And this is a very good product. When I don't have time or energy to make my own I prefer the bionoature egg pastas.
