I cook pasta several times a week, and use De Cecco almost every time. The only meals I wouldn't use it for are when I'm making something extra special with artisanal pasta or a big batch of pasta salad to take to work, when a cheaper brand will do. For everyday eating it has to be De Cecco due to its flavour and texture. The surface on cheaper brands often doesn't hold sauces so well as the shapes are smoother.

Since finding De Cecco which is NOT a gluten free/ specially designed IBS pasta I must add- it is just an authentic italian made pasta brand, I have had no problems in terms of stomach pains after I have eaten this. As well as buying linguine made by De ... Read the complete review
