The Best Dried Pasta.

I got the Granoro pasta here:

I've since tried it again and still think it's the best. It has actually turned me into a pasta fan. Good luck with your search! This is in Illinois by the way. In a suburb outside of Chicago.

The Best Dried Pasta.

I've never been a fan or noodles or pasta. However, I was cooking for those who do and found this brand in an international foods store called Granoro. It's the best. The texture is chewier than those I've had before and it's reasonably priced.

How important is using seasonal produce to you, as chowhound?

Yes, in Chicago, the Farmers Markets are not the best. I thought it was just me who noticed all of the vendors have the same stuff. I walk there every weekend they are open and try to buy local, though. It just seems wrong to get in the car in search of better FM's in the suburbs!
