Comment of the Day

The whole wheat pasta Carrie Applegate Jaeger used in this week's race with Rachael Ray got Bruce R curious about where to find the good stuff:

Carrie, I think I tried Hodgson Mill wheat spaghetti and maybe one or two others, but I gave up. I did find that wheat spaghetti works well when making sesame noodles. The earthy wheat goes well with the intense garlic, ginger, and sesame flavors.

Is there a brand that stands out? I assumed they all had that earthy, dry character that I don't generally appreciate.

Well, EOW Nation: What are the best brands?
