If I had only known, I've been buying this or years at Costco in South San Francisco. I didn't know that is was THAT good. Kewl, now I got something that you would like in my pantry, Yay!


May, just goes to show you can get everything here. Really, no need to sneak anything home in your luggage from anywhere.

I had no idea! I had never seen it in San Francisco.


Hm, you are right down the street from us now I guess since that is our Costco too!


That's what we've been buying in the Portland Costco too. yummy in the weekly batch of carbonara.

I see that pasta everytime I go to Costco and think "Huh. that must be some generic brand". I am a fool! I will grab some the next time I go there.

So, it's better than De Cecco and Barilla?


It's definitely better than Barilla, and edges out DeCecco (our usual pasta).


have you tried Dreamfield pasta? It ls not whole wheat but has low carbs and high fiber and tastes great! my kids noticed it was different than our reg (barilla), but in a good way. they gobble it up!


This pasta is divine. Costco has been selling it for about a year now, and it is the best pasta I have ever had. It is so good I use less sauce with it to enjoy the flavor and texture!


How funny! This past summer a young man from Rome whom we befriended through our family there came to spend a month with us and his mother sent Garofalo pasta with him as a hostess gift!(who wouldn't want pasta directly from Rome as a hostess gift? Smart mother!) Anyway we were supposed to split the 6 bags with another family they knew here. Instead WE ATE IT ALL! Imagine my surprise a few weeks late when, at Costco, here was the same pasta! Well the "other family" never knew the difference..(that theirs was bought a few miles away!)


GAROFALO is really really good. But I've been running up and down Italy to find the secret ones (I'm from venice) and I've finally found the real best ever in the universe, you can trust me.. it's artisanal pasta done not far from Rome and it's cheap.. I have to buy like 1000kg this year. Trust me this pasta sold by "Agriservice" is so incredible I usually have without sauce, just a drop of oil.. OMG, I miss it so much here in san diego!! ;'(


Hello Emanuele! I am in San Diego too. Where have you found the artisanal pasta? I love the Garafalo pasta, but am always searching for something better. Please, please, please where do I look for the artisanal pasta?


I had no idea how special it was but I just started buying Garafalo pasta at Costco in the Twin Cities, MN too. It is perfectly chewy and far more satisfying than Barilla. The best part? You don't even pay a premium over the so-so brands!

buy carisoprodol

I don't have any idea what is that pasta, and I want to taste that pasta, that makes me hunger, and to taste all kind of pasta...

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
