RED PEPPER SPAGHETTI WITH ARRABIATA SAUCE


Today I Made:
RED PEPPER  SPAGHETTI WITH ARRABIATA SAUCE for DINNER.
Fire roasted crushed tomatoes, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
This is the world's easiest and best tasting tomato sauce.
But sadly, this dish was ruined by using the world's worst spaghetti:
I bought it for obvious reason:
-Whole Wheat
-Organic
-Fair Trade
-Sustainable Agriculture
-The flavor
This is the second time I use this brand.
The first time, it was super al dente.
Almost undercooked.
My mistake.
Should have boiled it longer.
So, on my most recent trip to Whole Foods, I decided to give it another try.
Well it happened again!!!
I boiled it for 20 minutes, and it still tasted undercooked. 
It felt like we were eating cardboard!!!
It reminds me of the whole wheat pasta of the mid nineties.
Horrible, horrible, horrible.

So lesson learned.
NEVER buy this brand again.
And I should have listened to my husband, and stuck to using WHOLE WHEAT PENNE.

Yay for the sauce, boo for the spaghetti. Thanks for the heads up, I'll stay away from that brand.
If it's any consolation, it looks really good with the sauce! :)
