    I am looking to do a pasta primavera with whole wheat pasta. Suggestions on what is the best whole wheat pasta available (Santo Domingo) is appreciated.

    I don't know if it's the best pasta available, but the most common here in San Pedro is Milano or Princesa (both about 24-29 pesos a package), and they do have whole wheat offerings. There is a selection of imported Italian pastas in the Jumbo and Iberia here as well, but I don't know how good they are. If you have some time to spare, I can get you their name and price on my next trip to them on Friday.
    On a side note, there were a few Italian restaurants in Juan Dolio that were charging steep prices for their pasta dishes due to the fact they were using "authentic imported Italian pasta". They were using Milano and Princesa. Unknown if the Pasta Police were notified.

    Case in point with the Juan Dolio reference. What people don't know, won't hurt them.

    DR does have good Italian pasta available, I buy Delaverde at La Sirena, they even have the lasagna sheets that are great - just layer and bake. *

    german thin dense prepacked pumpernickel is available in most supermarkets, often in the freezer section.


    New bakery? *With proper bread??? Please share directions! Thank you!

    today for lunch: polish fresh cabbage stew with chorizo and smoked bacon, served with ciabatta bread.

    today in the freshly fixed oven: polish cheesecake with butterscotch chips. i plan to put some chocolate ganache on the top.

    ps, yuca gnocchi sounds great. i think lots of root veggies will work great for this dish, batatas should rock. heck, even platanos could be used. i will try different versions and report back.
