Now I have to be truthful and tell you all that I have tried the whole grain pastas in the past and went right back to my REGULAR noodles, quick, fast and in a hurry................ so I wasn't "raring to go" to try this type either............but ............. willing to try again.
The noodles turned out perfectly and tasted GOOD even ALONE tossed in a little Olive Oil! SURPRISED AND HAPPILY SURPRISED ALREADY...............
I made a MUSHROOM gravy in one pan and cooked some ground sirloin (very low fat content) in another pan, so I thought I would add a bit of fat...........some tasty strips of bacon to simmer them in.......... oh my kitchen was smelling good!
I know this photo doesn't look very appetizing LOL but I layed the noodles with the sirloin and bacon patties and then topped them with the gravy before popping in the over for about 10 minutes
OH ME OH MY .............. WHAT A GREAT DINNER..........GARLIC BREAD , MY NEW CREATION .........and some peas on the side........
THE TASTE AND TEXTURE OF THE NOODLES WERE THE PERFECT ACCOMPANIMENT TO THE MUSHROOM GRAVY.......YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM
