    Cooked up quickly. Taste was much better than the whole wheat. Price is pretty decent. Found it really filling so I will probably buy it again!

    I tried this product for the first time not knowing what to expect. I like that the taste is very similar to regular white pasta with all the added benefits of vegetables. The pasta tasted good and as an added bonus I liked the color variation. I would use this product again and feel good about giving my family four servings of vegetables hidden inside our pasta!

    One of the best parts of the Catelli Smart Veggie Spaghetti is the texture! It feels like regular pasta with a nice, firm bite. The flavour is also good and almost indistinguishable from regular white pasta. I will definitely buy this product again. The extra nutrients and fibre are worth it to enjoy pasta with a bit less guilt, even if it does cost just a bit more. Really pleased with this product!

    Love this pasta. I would buy it again for sure. It does have a bit of a vegetable flavour, but you can easily mask it with a heavy pasta sauce or the like.

    Des pâtes qui passent le test avec les enfants et mon chum! Elles sont délicieuses, faciles à faire, mais je sais qu'elles ont un petit quelque chose de plus côté nutritionnel.

    I loved it. I thought that it would taste different ten regular pasta but it totally didn't. I have really picky eaters in my house and they loved it. No difference in taste and sonmuch healthier. Also found it more filling l. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    As a mom of a young son who hates veggies, I was really excited to try this pasta out. It was a pleasant experience. My son didn't notice a difference and I thought it tasted wonderful. Definitely will be switch to this on Spaghetti and Meatball night.

    This was good. I normally buy the Catelli smart so this wasn't much of a change. The texture was good and i didn't find a difference in the taste (but I did have sauce on it). Definetely something I would buy again with the added bonus of the nutrients from the veggies.

    The Catelli Smart Veggie Spaghetti has incorporated 1/2 of a serving of veggies into a serving of the pasta. It also has high fiber and has the same amount as their Healthy Harvest whole wheat pasta. With respect to taste, I didn't notice much difference at all as compared to traditional white pasta. This pasta is a bit higher calorie than the whole wheat, but it does have some additional vitamins and minerals included. I am a huge whole wheat pasta fan and this pasta would be even better if it was made with whole wheat. If you usually purchase white pasta, this is an amazing option that would make your pasta a much healthier choice by sneaking in some veggies.

    Please Note: I was provided a complimentary product from ChickAdvisor to test and provide my feedback, however all opinions are my own.

    My review >>

    Packaging:
    Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta comes in a 340g box that's covered in attractive images/graphics and a lot of useful information (e.g., easy-to-follow cooking instructions; nutrition information; etc). The box has a tiny plastic-covered window that allows you to see the appearance of the pasta inside.

    Appearance:
    Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti is a white pasta that's cut to the standard length for spaghetti.

    Claims/Benefits:
    Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta delivered on its nutritional claims. It's low in fat and sodium, and it's a great source of fibre and vegetables. Also, I found that perfect al dente pasta could be achieved in 7 minutes as per the claims on the box. It's the first cholesterol-free Non GMO Verified spaghetti pasta I've tried.

    Taste/Texture:
    I prepared the Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta by following the instructions on the Creamy One Pot Spaghetti recipe card. (Note > I replaced the ham in the recipe with sliced cooked chicken breast.) The pasta dish that I was able to prepare in under 30 minutes looked and tasted great. I liked the smooth texture and chewiness of the pasta.

    The Verdict:
    I'm pleased with the nutritional value, texture, and taste of Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta. It's a great source of fibre that's low in fat and sodium, and it's cholesterol-free. Also Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti is reasonably priced. The claim that an 85-gram serving of Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta contains a 1/2 serving of vegetables is nice, however, I wouldn't rely on the pasta to provide me with my daily serving of vegetables. I prefer to eat fresh vegetables. That said, I could see myself purchasing Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta on occasion, even though I think the other white spaghetti pastas I've tried in the past meet my needs quite adequately. I'm not blown away by the pasta's benefits, so I'm not going to go out of my way to recommend Catelli Smart Veggie™ Spaghetti pasta to a friend.
