I cook a whole pound of spaghetti or rice at once and freeze it in single serving sizes. This saves me time at night and I don't have to worry about how much dry spaghetti or rice to cook to get 1 serving -

Disappointed as bags were wadded and jumbled inside box. Bags would not come out of box without ripping the entire box open, so I put them together as the other brand does and then folded the entire pile into a neat "roll" with the tops up for easy extraction. This line needs better QC! 24
