Who has not tried the real espagueti con fritos (veggy version) and aguacate (i carry my own in case they don't have) at the stand of a doña (I don't know her name) on the intersection at south entry of San Juan de la Maguana (coming from barahona, el capá), is not qualified to discuss the issue.

we have our lunch meal delivered and the woman that cooks it does an excellent job.

Try getting that in gringolandia..

The only reason I don't do it daily is the weight gain.

I always buy 365 whole wheat spaghetti. Almost 9K 5 star reviews can't be wrong.

I love pasta and would eat it every day if I could. But of course, that is not ideal for health/weight. Honestly the whole wheat pasta was something I could not get used to. I tried but it just had a different bite to it. It could be the way I cooked it though. My MIL was a very good cook although she could really be inventive when it came to pasta dishes, which was not always a good thing...lol. I have watched people in DR make spaghetti. As soon as they drop the bouillon cube in to the "sauce", its over for me. I would always tell everyone to just leave me some pasta, I will add butter and parmesan cheese.

Oh KC, I tried the whole wheat pasta. I can’t do it either. Ditto brown rice.

I know AE, the butter and parmesan cheese...lol. But it was the better option compared to the Dominican spaghetti they cooked....lol. Funny though, to this day two of my nieces/nephews always ask for "tias" (that's me) spaghetti, butter and parmesan cheese. I guess they decided it is better than the Dominican spaghetti that is being served 🤣. I may try the whole wheat again, just to see.

Never tried whole wheat pasta but I'm sure the difference in taste is as pronounced as between white and whole wheat bread. It sounds like it would ruin a good Italian tomato sauce.

Don't do it.
Like you said it has a different bite.
It is where "al dente" goes to die.
I always used to feel a little guilty when everyone I know was on the whole wheat kick, so it's good to know I'm not alone.
Btw...
I'm not cooking for a lot of people so, any ideas about how to deal with unused anchovies.
What's better?
Tins or jars?
Can they be frozen?

I used to go either way until one day a bag of basmati had a very smoky taste to it.
It turned me off the stuff.
So now I stick with Jasmin.
As a matter of fact I have a pot of it on the stove right now.

Correct. It has a separate setting for brown rice. I think it measures in hours.
LOL, my son says his rice cookers takes 40 minutes to cook brown rice. He then stuffs it a salmon with pearl onions and wraps in tinfoil and either into the oven or onto the barbeque.
