Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta *Review*

Spaghetti. Messy eaters. Photos. Life can’t get any better! We had the chance to try a pasta that we have never tried before, so we were all excited to give it a whirl: Ronzoni.


Looks good, doesn’t it?

About Ronzoni:

In 1881, a young boy emigrated from the small fishing village of San Fruttuoso, Italy, to the United States. His name would become synonymous with a kitchen cupboard staple and one of the most recognized brands in America: Ronzoni®.

Emanuele Ronzoni was in his teens when he got started in the macaroni trade in New York. Just eleven years after arriving in the U.S., he launched his own small macaroni company with a partner and, later, joined forces with two others to create the Atlantic Macaroni Company in Queens, NY.

In 1915, he went into business on his own, starting the company that still bears his name, the Ronzoni Macaroni Company. By the time World War I ended, Ronzoni and his famous Genoa-style, or fancy-cut shaped noodles, had firmly established itself as one of the best-known brands in the east.

New production plants were built in Long Island City, NY. By employing the latest manufacturing technologies of the day and committing to only quality ingredients, Ronzoni became the number one pasta in the largest pasta market in the east, New York.

Emanuele Ronzoni was eventually succeeded by his son. The 1950s and 1960s marked periods of significant growth. Ronzoni macaroni became available in nearly every state along the eastern and western seaboards and Puerto Rico.

Today, Ronzoni® is part of the New World Pasta family of brands, the leading dry pasta manufacturer in the United States. New World Pasta brands include Ronzoni® Smart Taste™ and Ronzoni Healthy Harvest®.

Up until this trial, we had been buying whatever store brand pasta that is at the store we are shopping at, at the time. To be honest, I never thought that there were different ‘kinds’ of pasta. I didn’t realize that pasta, such as Ronzoni had the nutrients in is that my kids and my family need. I compared the labels and I had no idea that pastas could have things in them such as vitamin A & C, less sugars – I really thought pasta was just that – pasta.

The kids loved it. We all loved it and side by side, none of us could tell what pasta was which one. The taste is great, just as you would expect with any pasta. Just because there are hidden nutrients in there, doesn’t make the taste change.
