Braille has multigrain penne that combines whole wheat and oats and is very tasty.

I agree with Barilla Plus (whole grain though not whole wheat) tastes like regular pasta but way healthier. Has legume flours, flax seed and some other healthy stuff.

I am not a fan of whole wheat pasta. Just can't get used to it.

I agree, generic are just fine! I'm partial to Publix generic brand over any other grocery store.

Nothing wrong with the super cheap, generic walmart/kroger brands. I don't mind them at all, and they are a quarter the cost of the other stuff.

Will definitely try some of these suggestions

I like Barilla Plus (whole grain not whole wheat). I've never been to a grocery store that didn't have it. Tastes like normal pasta to me.

Dreamfield can buy it at Walmart. It's not whole wheat but it IS low carb and tastes just like regular pasta.

I like PC Blue Menu (although not sure if that is just in Canada or not). But, when Catelli Smart is on sale, I buy that. I actually prefer the whole wheat kinds, but my husband doesn't and the Smart pasta is often in a larger box than the other whole wheat stuff and it has the same nutrition content.

365 or Trader Joe's.

Thank you, everyone. I do have a Trader Joe's near me, so I'm going to try theirs first. Some of the others that people recommended aren't sold around here though. :-(

I also tried the tip to cook the whole wheat pasta a bit longer with my store brand last night and that did help.

Funny there was just a yahoo article on this. They said Whole Foods and Trader Joes were best with both having a slight nutty taste and good texture.

I'd love to hear the answer to this myself. I have tried it and I have to say that I do not like any of the ones I've tried. I don't guess that colored pasta like you make pasta salad out of really qualifies since it's not whole wheat -- probably laced with food coloring.

We swear by Maras over here :) ... We're an organic non processed family, so for us this is hands down the best for taste and texture!

Catelli Smart pasta is my favorite! It also fools my kids into thinking they are eating regular white pasta!

Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? They sell some really cheap whole wheat pastas in bags that are very tasty.

I also find w/ whole wheat, if I cook it a little longer than I would white, it helps.

I went to Sav-a-lot store and found Heartland whole wheat pasta. I just wanted to try it since it was $1. I was surprised with how the texture and taste was. May have been the herbs but it was not a harsh taste and no after taste that you have to gargle away. I enjoyed the meal that I made from it.

I really love Mueller's 100% Whole Grain Penne !

Have a few other options stocked up at home that I haven't tried yet, I'll get back to you when I do!

Hi all -

What is your favorite brand of whole wheat pasta? I know that some of them taste more like cardboard, and others taste better. I was hoping to learn from you, rather than tasting them all myself. LOL
