Pennsylvania Dutch Pasta

The cooler weather is also a great time for comfort foods. Comfort foods aren’t always the healthiest choices for Mom’s to serve up. Pennsylvania Dutch Noodles has a whole grain, yolk free pasta available for just the occasion. From soup to stroganoff, noodles have evolved to become staples of our favorite recipes and dishes.

It’s just not hip or chic to entertain guests, or your family on high priced staples. But it is possible to do so using Pennsylvania Dutch products.

Pennsylvania Dutch products has been around for nearly 100 years, their collection of noodles include something for everyone, and every occasion.
A couple of neat little facts I found on the Pennsylvania Dutch website –
Did you know that the first noodles cam from the Middle East in 5000 B.C., The far East is also credited as a hot-spot in noodle evolution. As early as 300 B.C., the Chinese used whole grain paste to make a noodle type food. 200 Years later, China’s neighbor Japan, began using buckwheat noodles as a staple of their tea ceremonies.
Today, families from all over the world enjoy noodles.

Pennsylvania Dutch Pasta

I wanted to see if anyone in my family of 5 could notice if I took a switch from regular noodles, to a healthier whole grain, and yolk free pasta. I made a big pot of spaghetti, did everything my usual way. Served the spaghetti, and no one noticed a taste difference. I guarantee that if I would have told hubby that the noodles he was about to eat were whole grain, and yolk free he would have refused to eat them. Too bad he doesn’t know all of the switches I have made with his food, including a switch with the Pennsylvania Dutch Noodles.

If you’re going to be cooking with pasta this Holiday Season, or after, I highly suggest you take a peek at Pennsylvania Dutch, they have recipes, a printable coupon, as well as tips on how to store noodle. It’s chocked full of info.
