You can really taste all three flavors
My Favorite Tri-Color: Watch for Amazon Sale Prices!
For these tri-color Farfalle, you’ll need to ensure you use LOTS of water. They need it and deserve it. When done, these have a texture not seen in most dried pastas and is perfect for pasta salads as well as hot dishes.
In terms of flavor, I often find that tri-colors are just that…more color than flavor…but that isn’t the case here. You get the subtle yet distinct flavor differences you’re meant to. Perfectly balanced.
In terms of shipping, these weren’t quite how I usually get pasta from Amazon. The five boxes were packaged loosely within a plastic bag so that the boxes got all jumbled up inside the box with other products ordered. That means that the boxes got very dinged and crunched, though none were punctured or open. Still, to go into the pantry I had to combine 2 of the boxes into another container because they were so very banged up. Perhaps I should take a star from it for that, but the pasta itself is what I’m reviewing and that is certainly deserving of 5!
