This was 20p for a while, I thought that was dirt cheap, now it's 18p!

This now coupled with the value pasta sauce, you could feed a family for a £1. LOL.

Very cheap! heat added
I must admit I use the cheap pasta twists from morrisons for pasta bakes, and they taste absolutely fine, main thing is too not under/over cook.Also good for making your own pasta salads, rather than buying those little ready made tubs for about £2.Prefer to make my own pasta sauces though, it doesn't cost much, takes very little time, and tastes much better.

I buy this regularly, it's fine.. but then again, all pasta tastes the same to me... If you have it with sauce it's obviously the sauce you can taste anyway

No, (well I have used an internet recipe for a microwave sponge pudding!) but I prefer to just try things, once you know a few basic herbs and flavours, you just go with your taste buds! a bit of trial and error.It's funny, I've got about 30 cook books, all different types, indian etc, and I've probably done about 3 recipes out of any of them ever, that's not to say I'm a great cook, because I'm not, it's just my wife doesn't enjoy cooking that much.I enjoy making pasta dishes, as most are cheap, quick, simple, and most important, tasty!
If you want a few basic pasta dish ideas, just PM me.

Recipes are meant to inspire you, you don't have to follow them exactly, but there are some great ones at there.

I mainly eat pasta+ tuna + mayo + peppers + black pepper.

The Italians are all in hiding at the sacrilege of this... haha

It is what it is, very cheap and not very tasty. Personally not for me, well not after last summer in italy.
#12
i prefer not the expensive but the mediocre pasta. The ones that hav a dry matt finish so that the sauce clings on it much more. I'm not fussy but when I tried this sort of cheap pasta in the past all the sauce sliped off and just sat at the bottom of the plate unless I keep stirring it. But i have to admit I do tend to buy the tesco value lasagna sheets...I wish they go on offer for 18p

Best pasta recipe I know is l courgette roughly diced, I medium onion roughly chopped, 2 cloves garlic and 4 rashers bacon (cut into strips), all fried in some olive oil on a medium heat for about 10 minutes - meanwhile cook pasta, drain, add 1small carton creme freche and the cooked ingredients, sprinkle over some parmesan and enjoy. Total prep and cook time less than 20 mins! (by the way the value pasta is just as good and tasty).
Absolutely delicious.

its fine really, tends to need abit longer to cook i find, but when you put any sauce on i wuldn't notice the difference
#18
I always use this and think it tastes the same as any other pasta, I usually use it in a chicken, leek & bacon pasta bake and the sauce sticks to the pasta lol
#19
Some good ideas!
#20
Pasta is so cheap is almost free anyway. Good deal though.
#21
It's pretty rank. But then it is 18p.

I can't imagine you'd get much nutrition from it.

Fresh pasta tastes soo much nicer than any other pasta, but then it costs a lot more.
If you don't mind this, you can't go wrong for 18P!

I buy this stuff and it's absolutely fine.

Not too much nutrition in normal pasta anyway!

HAd this all the time as student and ok for cheesy sauces that cover up the texture but any good cook would notice difference between this and say napolini or tesco egg dried pasta
