After following instructions on the package, the macaroni was tan in color. Their idea of 'al dente' would break a jaw!
Will not purchase again. Hopefully, another manufacturer will come up with ready pasta that actually tastes good. I don't like the taste of 'cardboard. Barilla pasta is a very good product, but the Ready Pasta needs real improvement.
Was very excited when I discovered what I thought was a good time saver. I was so disappointed that this product did not meet my standards for good tasting pasta.
Barilla's other pasta products which require normal cooking, are fine and we use them in our household. This one is a product fail.
