MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 17, 2014

"Doesn't have much flavor at all, but an excellent choice for toddlers and older kids as well as those who can't eat a lot of spices."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2013

"Sooo tasty! My husband and I both love it. Our one year old, who doesn't seem to like pasta, even ate some. If you don't like tomatoes, it is really easy to dish up a plate without them."
