I was shocked when I tried Barilla Plus Pasta. It tasted just like the regular version. The texture was also fantastic. Barilla Plus Pasta did not ruin my favorite Italian dishes one bit. Even my boyfriend, who doesn't care for whole grains, was shocked that it was made with healthier ingredients. If you have a problem with the taste of whole grain products, you must try this product.

I have been searching high and low for any kind of food that will keep me full for long periods of time while dieting. I mean if you can name it I can almost guarantee I have ran across it, from Brown rice to zero calorie noodles, I mean the list goes on and on. But while I was searching I always looked for things that were low in calories and low in prices! Most of the things that claim to help you lose weight are so high in prices it can run a person literally nuts! So that's what brings me to one of my worst experiences with weight loss and just food in general ''brown rice''. I had saw that they were selling them at the Walmart next to my house and instantly bought some.I thought I had finally found my base food that I could eat and enjoy whenever I got hungry. You should have seen the way my eyes lit up upon buying a bag.

So fast forward to my preparation technique, I had everything ready the stove, the pot, and my salt free seasoning lol. Now I began pouring the bag of rice in the pot, filled it with water and mixed in my seasoning and the only thing that was left for me to do was wait and occasionally I would stir. Oh I couldn't stop imagining how good it was going to taste and finally something that I had prepared myself that wouldn't make me regurgitate and try again.
Well the time had finally come. The rice was done, and my stomach was howling and growling as if I had a wolf living in it.

I went to pick up the spoon and tried some.... I spat it out so fast it was ridiculous. All that waiting and anticipating I had previously done. Brown rice was some of the nastiest, chalkiest, crap I have ever tasted. Now maybe its because I am not a worldwide known chef and didn't prepare it properly, but I swear if you aren't either please do not have any Brown Rice!!!! It was so bland that I ended up throwing things in it just to try to make it palatable. And my diet went right out the window. I mean from hot sauce, to butter, to sugar and nothing helped.... So I would advise anybody trying brown rice to have a very strong stomach or do some extensive research before attempting. Once again that is just my opinion on it.

Penne is long and thick , takes more time to cook. My kids don't like them because taste bulky. I don't mind though. I love all pasta.

This is my favorite brand for pasta. Before I thought that all brands are just the same but when I've tried Barilla Plus Pasta it makes all the difference.

They say "0 trans fat" on the front of the package, yet a major ingredient is partially hydrogenated oil, (Tran’s fat). It is even listed before the less than 2-percent disclaimer. I’m guessing they have adjusted serving size to indicate less than 1 gram per serving. The legal loophole is that you can make the serving size as small as you want to get under the limit. The product contains a significant amount of hydrogenated oil which is suspected to raises cholesterol and to be a serious health risk. I’m also guessing that Guerrero rationalizes their deception with "Let the buyer beware." But in my opinion that is just another way of saying that if we can fool the buyer for profit, so be it. I would consider that a lack of ethics, or social conscious. It is sad that that is how far business had deteriorated. Don’t trust anything you read on the front of a food label.
