Our family has been eating the Barilla Plus and the Heartland Plus for over a year now. I tried whole wheat pasta once and we didn't like it. But the multigrain Plus pastas are great! Can't tell the difference in flavor and they are much healthier than regular pastas. We eat the Penne a lot, as well as the Spaghetti. Just wish they offered more types of pasta in these lines. We buy them at WalMart.

In our house, we've been eating 100% whole wheat pastas for years and love it. We do like Barilla Plus too, though, for its taste as well as its high Omega-3 and protein contents.
For those of you who are having difficulty switching to the taste/texture of 100% WW, perhaps try a "blended" pasta brand such as Ronzoni, which mixes the regular semolina flour with whole grains. It's still better than the all-white/refined stuff.

I love Barilla Plus! I also like WW pasta, but only with chicken and veggies. I don't like the way it tastes with tomato sauce.

Barilla Plus tastes exactly like regular pasta, IMO. But I do want to clarify that it is NOT whole grain pasta. It has whole grains in it, but it also has regular white semolina flour.

But it is a lot healthier than regular white pasta, so it's a good compromise, I think. Especially for kids and those adults in our life who eat like kids! :)

As I believe anyone can get used to anything, I would simply make pasta with the good stuff and offer that anyone else who objects can make their own.

It was hard for me to get my husband to try it. He is diabetic and needs to eat more whole grain but trying to get him too is a job LOL

Thanks for the suggestions. I can handle some of the better-for-you brands I've tried, but DH doesn't like them. I've put them on my grocery list. Trying to have more meatless meals in the household.

Thanks for the recommendation; I visited the website and some of those recipes appear delicious---I'll try it soon. I have a ton of mussels that I want to add to pasta and this comes at a really serendipitous moment!

Heartland Plus with Ala Omega 3 is also very good. When cooked it is not hard.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

(thank you SO much for the recommendation. that is exactly what i needed to hear.

i have tried whole wheat pasta and i really didn't like it. i was thinking of mixing the two to slowly 'lure' myself away but i'm going to try this instead.)

We tried Barilla PLUS for the first time last night, and both my husband and I very much enjoyed it. Its a multi-grain pasta that has protein, fiber, and omega-3 in it. I have a hard time convincing my husband to try yet another whole grain pasta, but we were both pleasantly surprised with its great taste in addition to being a healthier alternative.
