Kalyn's Kitchen Picks: Garofalo Whole Wheat Fusilli

Garofalo Whole Wheat Fusilli
If you haven't been happy with other whole wheat pasta, I'm betting you will love this brand!

It's been a while since I've recommended a new product as one of my Kalyn's Kitchen Picks, but lately I've been loving this Garofalo Whole Wheat Fusilli so much, I decided it really deserves to be honored.  I first discovered this brand when my Costco started carrying Garofalo Organic Whole Wheat Italian Spaghetti, something I featured as a pick back in 2008.  Then I had a reader tell me that they could buy the Garofalo Whole Wheat Fusilli at Costco as well.  I watched and watched, but it didn't ever appear at my Costco, so I decided to buy Garofalo Whole Wheat Fusilli from Amazon.com!  Since I have Amazon Prime and didn't have to pay shipping, it was completely worth it to me for a pasta product I've enjoyed so much.  I am still loyal to my beloved Dreamfields Low-Carb Pasta but this Fusilli and the Garofalo Whole Wheat Spaghetti now have a permanent spot next to the Dreamfields on my pantry shelf.

I've just started experimenting with this pasta, and here are two recipes I've loved it in so far.  If you've used this product in a recipe, please share your link in the comments!




And for a hot pasta dish with some similar flavors, I used it in this Vegetarian Whole Wheat Pasta with Fried Kale, Tomato Sauce, and Goat Cheese.

Garofalo is my favorite brand of whole wheat pasta also! It's also a fun coincidence that Garofalo is my grandmother's maiden name also :)

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll look for this in my local Costco.

Kalyn Denny said...

Joanne, that's fun.

Lydia, I will be jealous if your Costco has it. I am loving this!

Alex said...

I use their fusilli and tagliatelle. Very nice indeed!

Kalyn Denny said...

Alex, I guess I better try the tagliatelle!

Mimi Mj Strategic Communications said...

I love Dreamfields and I'm sure I will like this, too. Good to know you can find it on Amazon. Thanks for the tip, Kalyn.

Kalyn Denny said...

Mimi, hope you enjoy!

I think buying it from Amazon is a great idea. I have a prime account too, but hadn't thought about buying groceries that are hard to fine.

Jana Wetherington said...

Could someone try to describe to me how this tastes compared to other whole wheat pastas? Because I absolutely hate the taste of other whole wheat pastas. :)

Becky at VintageMixer said...

Okay, to Costco I go! Thanks Kalyn

Barbara, ordering from Amazon has worked well for me when I like a product and can't get it in Salt Lake.

Jana, I have had some whole wheat pasta that tasted like cardboard, but I love this. I think it has a great flavor, just slightly more wheaty tasting than white flour pasta.

Becky I find the spaghetti at Costco, but I get this one from Amazon.
