Pasta That's Worth a Twirl

October 02, 2002|Russ Parsons

While the Latini pastas were the best in our tasting, we also liked the spaghetti from Rustichella d'Abruzzo, another artisanal Italian product, as well as from La Molisana and Barilla, Italian brands made in the U.S. In addition, we tasted spaghetti from Favorita d'Abruzzo, DeCecco, Ronzoni, A.G. Ferrari and Pasta di Gragnano.

Most artisanal pastas cost $3.50 to $4.50 for a half-kilo package (just over a pound). Both Latini spaghettis are available at Bristol Farms for $4.09 a pound or online from A.G. Ferrari & Co. for $3.95, plus shipping. Latini pastas can also be found at independent markets such as Wine Exchange in Orange, Bay Cities in Santa Monica, Monte Carlo Deli in Burbank and the original Irvine Ranch Market in Irvine.
