At this price point, I guess it's ok to some or most people for authentic Italian made pasta. But for me, having tried italpasta, Barilla, Unico, I can't tell a tell damn difference in taste once it's drowned in sauce.

I'll stick with the occasional sale of 0.99 c or the rare sale from no frills at 0.50 c for 750 gram pack Unico or Italpasta. ( I still have 15 packs left from the last 0.50c sale, after buying 20)

Italian made pasta doesn't taste different from non-Italian commercial pastas, but the 100% durum wheat and slow drying process just allows it to have characteristics better suited for cooking Italian pasta dishes. If you overcook the pasta and drown it in sauce though, it'll all have the same taste and texture.

I bought a ton of this stuff on the $1 sale. Its definitely worth it to me to pay the extra for this pasta but I can understand people choosing italpasta or primo when they are have the cost per 900g

If you make pasta al dente you will notice the difference. Molisana beats them all.

Yes, I do make it al dente. 7 minutes in boiling water, then I immediately submerge it in cold water to stop the cooking process. As it dries, I put a little olive oil and mix it around so the noodles don't adhere to each other.
