Ronzoni and Mom Central sent me a box of their new Smart Taste spaghetti to try. We eat spaghetti at least once a week in our house, and it is one of those meals that I know everyone will eagerly eat and enjoy! (Well, as long as I don't put tomato sauce on Colin's -- he likes butter and cheese.)
So, I was happy to try out this new style that has 3x the fiber and calcium equal to an 8 oz glass of milk. More nutrients can't be bad, right? Well, they could be bad if they didn't taste as good as the traditional version.
Based on the empty bowls last night, I think it's safe to say that it tastes just fine! None of us noticed any difference in taste (and I didn't tell them it was different until AFTER dinner.) Nate felt it was a bit tough, but I think that's because we usually eat angel hair pasta, and this was the thicker spaghetti noodles.
If the price is comparable, and they come out with an angel hair version, we'll definitely add this to our pantry in the future! Visit the Ronzoni website for more information about their products and nutrition facts.
Ronzoni knows how tough it can be to feed kids healthy, nutritious meals that they eat and made this funny video to commiserate with moms. Lydia especially appreciates the robot that shows up near the end.
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Ronzoni Pasta and received a sample of Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta to facilitate my review and a $20 thank-you gift certificate.
