I think the most easily available bronze die pasta in the US is De Cecco. I definitely notice a difference in texture. It doesn't reheat well though imho. The surface of the pasta feels a bit gummy if you overcook/reheat in the sauce. It just made me rethink how I do leftovers.

-MJ

P.S. I looked at the import catalog on the "Fronte" brand and googled around and couldn't find anything mentioning bronze dies. So don't know if it is or not.
Pasta at Aldi's is 0.74 a 16oz box and unless you're making fresh pasta I challenge you to taste the difference.

this is no proof of anything, but more times than not, smaller Italian imported pasta utilize bronze dyes. Basically, the surface is rougher = better sauce clinginess. I am no expert though, so take this info with a grain of salt or a drop of sauce Smilie

Does anyone know if it comes in those crappy plastic unresealable bags that 95% of the other speciality italian pastas come in, or is it a box?

Quote from rly723 :
Don't waste calories and carbs on regular noodles, pasta. Shirataki noodles has been a huge find for me. They smell terrible though, so rinsing in water then boiling helps. But enough seasoning, sauce makes it 90% of taste, texture of regular noodles.
