Mark Ladner Slums It for Store-Bought Pasta Test

By
Del Posto knows.

Remember this pasta taste test, where an underdog called Trader Joe's trumped all? In case anything has changed, Bon App asks Del Posto's 100-layer-lasagna demigod, chef Mark Ladner, to narrow in on a bunch of grocery store brands like Ronzoni and Buitoni, and analyze what's what. He does a lot of sniffing for wheat, uses the word "codify," and ultimately crowns Barilla dried fettuccine a winner. Note: Ix-nay on the fake ortellini-tey. [Bon Appétit]
