Heavy walled Macaroni

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I sell a lot of mac and cheese, was using Sysco Labella because it is almost impossible to screw up. I however refuse to deal with Sysco anymore, and FSA uses a product out of Dakota Growers which is far inferior. I have the idea that R&F pasta is exactly the same as Labella but I have not tested it yet, in fact I have not located the heavy wall version yet though I know that they make it.

 

Does anyone have a brand that they swear by? I am looking for something that is fool proof for my low wage/skill staff.

If your staff can't make mac and cheese from scratch, I'd say you have larger problems than distributors.

I could be mistaken, but I believe he is looking for a pasta to make into mac & cheese. I can relate to the aggravation with Sysco. Have you checked into Barilla? We use their product at work and it works out well. I am not sure if they make a heavy walled mac though.

so I ended up going with R&F heavy walled because I thought that it was the same as Labella just renamed ( theory was sysco had the name but the Italian American Pasta Company still had rights to sell the recipe under a different name). turns out that R&F is good but not the same and not as good. Because Food Services of America special ordered the R&F it also as more expensive, $24 a case versus $20. 

 

So i went back to Sysco for pallet buys of pasta, and might go back to them as my main source. I run a mac and cheese house/dinner, so the quality of the mac is very important.
