I know I saw the increase here, so when I saw it at the food thrift, I bought about 30 boxes of low carb pasta. It was about 69 cent a box. Which is unheard of for low carb pasta. I also used a coupon and got about a combo of barilla pasta and classico spaghetti sauce (the ones sold in canning jars) for $1.99 a combo. Which I thought was a super price considering I was getting a pound of pasta, a jar of sauce AND a canning jar. I bought about 10 combos. I also have about 5 boxes of whole wheat pasta that I got for free using a double coupon.
This week I see that San Giorgio pasta is on sale for $1 a box. I thought I'd get some to add to my pantry since my oldest eats about 2 pounds of pasta a week by himself. I appreciate you posting this article, it helps me to determine what to spend my food dollars on this week. Pasta is a huge thing in our home. I use it in soups, to make Asian noodle dishes, pasta and red sauce, pasta with Alfredo sauce (I've got a great homemade white sauce recipe for Alfredo using dry milk powder), sides of buttered noodles. It's on the menu as much as beans are here.
