Busy mom of 3 with little time after work for doing a large meal and tons of dishes. I love Pronto for the one pot type style dish it allows you to cook. Add the proper amount of water...then add whatever else in at the end -sauce, veggies, meat/shrimp. Less clean up, faster and more effective for our household. It's my go to now.
To review this, I made it the way promoted on the package - needing only 10 minutes and no draining - and also the normal way to make pasta.
I would recommend not making this the no-drain way. It left a horrible film on my pot and I had to watch it very closely since the water kept completely soaking in, making me have to add more water twice. It's much easier to cook it the normal way, not having to constantly stir and watch it constantly.
The pasta itself did not get larger at all throughout the boiling process which was really odd, which makes me wonder what process was done to the pasta to make it "no-drain" and if its safe. The taste was great however, and the price was $1.00 for the package, which was amazing.
However because of the reasons above, I doubt I'll ever buy the pronto version of barilla pasta again.
Great pasta to use when making homemade macaroni cheese. Cooks well and tastes great, good price. Would definitely recommend!
