Notta Pasta – the fettucine style – it rocks! This pasta is about a centimeter wide when dry, and cooks in 5 minutes. We tried it using a sauce recipe from the Notta Pasta website, the mushroom sauce, and were highly impressed. First of all, the noodles are an excellent length – not so long that they get tangled in the pot. Secondly, they are chewy and stretchy, suitable for al dente cooking. Thirdly, they do not require rinsing as the Tinkyada (another favorite) pasta does. Fourthly (is there a fourthly?), the recipe that we used from their website was mighty tasty and the amount of sauce was correct for the amount of pasta. We did not use the whole teaspoon of salt called for in the recipe, only a half teaspoon, but the recipe was great in all other ways. We used top-of-the-line, flavorful parmesan from Italy, not some cut-rate parmesan without flavor.
This Notta Pasta costs about $3.25 per one-pound box. The recipes on the website are for 8 ounces, which turned out to be enough for three people who are not gluttons (a word play on gluten – sorry!). Anyway, we like this pasta a lot, and will use it again.
