The perfect Mac & cheese dish isn’t complete without these noodles. My bf and I decided to make Sunday dinner last week and it consisted of Mac & cheese with fried chicken; I didn’t think twice about what noodles to purchase. They are easy to cook and hold up to all the other ingredients. I prefer the regular version but they do have a wheat kind as well. They are great value and can be bought in bulk as well. For the two of us I only used half a box to get some good personal sized portions. Definitely a go to food item in my house

This is my preferred instant pasta brand. I’d rather pay the extra 30 cents than settle for cheaper brands. It really rounds out a good pot of soup just make sure you don’t add the noodles into the pot. Scoop individual portions into your soup bowl until the soup comes to room temperature. You don’t want soggy noodles.

These elbows are my go-to pasta for any macaroni dish I am preparing. All you need is to salt the water, and Barilla has got you covered the rest of the way. Makes my baked macaroni and cheese taste so delicious!

These are some of my favorite pasta noodles, that are not real spaghetti noodles, to cook. They cook seriously so fast and come out perfect every time. I either eat them plain and with a little bit of butter or I eat them with some spaghetti sauce. The shape is fun too, so that is another plus. I have never found another pasta that has cooked so evenly and so fast, so I will repurchase these for a long time.

Barilla is my go-to brand! They never disappoint. I prefer my pasta to be the perfect consistency and the directions on the back allow me to prepare them to my liking - al dente! I’m a an absolute carb junkie and could literally live out the rest of my days, eating pasta daily. The noodles are tasty with or without sauce. Highly recommended!

Favorite inexpensive pasta brand! Always fresh with great flavor. Best for Mac and cheese and other creamy pasta sauces. My favorite Mac and cheese has heavy whipping cream, Comte, mozzarella and cheddar with garlic.

Barilla pastas are some of my fave out there. I buy mines from various places as they are found everywhere! The price is also good and won't break your bank. We eat a lot of pasta in our family and Barilla pastas are always in my pantry because of that.

Various is my go to brand anytime I buy pasta. They come in both regular and wheat options and the price is very reasonable. When they’re on sale I can find them for $1 a box. Used the elbow shape in my shrimp and broccoli pasta

Barilla pastas are great affordable pastas for any dish. We use the elbows mostly for my husband's 5 cheese mac 'n cheese and minestrone. Cooked correctly, they have a great texture. So good!
