|Celebrate National Pasta Month (October) by treating yourself to some great pastas. Check out the pastas in specialty food stores. Most people are tempted to save money on staples like pasta. But pasta isn’t a commodity—you get what you pay for. The best companies pay for the best strains of durum wheat, and spend lots on equipment that retains the most protein and texture as the dough is processed into pasta. If you’re not already using the best brands, next time, test a better brand against what you generally use. See if the extra dollar or even three dollars for a package that serves four people isn’t more than worth it for the extra-delicious taste and texture. Italians are demanding about the taste of their pasta; they use very little sauce.
