I was wondering what pasta noodles you all use and feel good about. I bought some Golden grain/Mission Rigatoni.I called Golden grain and they said they do not owne that company any more. They sold it off to American/Italian pasta co. So I called them and they had me leave my question and said they would get back to me.. I havent heared from them and I wanted to make Pasta for dinner tonight. Has anyone use this pasta before or have talked to the American/Italian pasta co to see if it contains peanuts or treenuts and cross contamination issues.. thank you for your help.

Everything by New World Pasta is safe. They are a huge company so they have different brands at all stores just look to the back and see who makes it. They are pn/tn free.
Muellers is also totally pn/tn free and they are a national brand as well.
Both were very helpful and I have called a few times to double check.

I use Primo. Again, like erik, have never called to check. Canadian specific for both of us so maybe that's why we haven't felt the need to check, I don't know. Never ever had a problem.
Best wishes! [img][/img]

We use Tinkayada rice pasta! Delicious! Rice based but much more enjoyable than wheat based. Can't even tell the difference really. Comes in spagetti, macaroni, shells, and other cool shapes. My dd also uses Anthony's(small stars and abc's) and Annies Mac & Cheese.

I agree that New World pasta is the best choice for PA/TNA... as of when I called them about a year ago. They are definitly NOT for anyone with a severe egg allergy.
We use Barilla because they are the only company we have contacted that runs egg-free lines, making them over all the best choice for us. (MFA is hard this way- you sometimes have to weigh two risks at once)
I know that they use pn oil in some of their shaped pasta, and my daughter will not eat their rotini or shells (I think we tried the shells once) at all, even though there is nothing on the label to indicate that there is a problem with them. We use their angel hair, elbows, and fettucine, as well as the manicotti.
