Central Market Organic Spaghetti Review

I have shopped at H-E-B for as long as I can remember. I love them because they have awesome prices and they never let me down. Within the past few years I began to see foods labeled "Central Market."
I asked an employee about them one day and he told me that it's a brant that's apart of H-E-B. I thought that ws awesome. I did a bit of researhc and found out they had a website. Central Market, and H-E-B opened the first Central Market in Austin in 1994. I love their website and found that they had a Spaghetti Kit. But that it only available in some stores.


So, I thought I would just make my own by purchasing the Central Market Organic spaghetti and making my own sauce and add in some veggies and beef for a bit. I also grabbed some H-E-B bread and buttered and sprinkled some garlic ontop and served it with a side of steamed carrots.

I always try to get others to eat a bit healthier, especially my grandparents. So, I asked my grandmother if they had heard that H-E-B made a line of organics. She said no, and didn't seem that interested. I asked her if she ever had organic spaghetti. She said no, again, uninterested. Then she turned to me and said, it's too chewy. I said, "No grandma, that's whole wheat spaghetti." And I then explained to her what organic was and said that it's better for you. She was persistant that she 'ONLY' likes to buy the brand she always buys. So, this review is for her as well as others who would rather buy their usual.

This is a review of Central Market Organic Spaghetti:

Cost: Very Affordable
The cost of this spaghetti at my local H-E-B was $.99

Preparation: About 6 minutes to boiling water
I also added a dash or two of salt to the water to season it.

: 11-12 minutes
I added the spaghetti to the water when it was at a rapid boil. I added a drizzle of olive oil (so spgahetti would not stick together), and a dash or two more of salt. I let it boil in the water to the recommended boiling time. At that time I managed to get a noodle out and bit it. I let it boil for exactly one more minute.

: Al Dente
The spghetti was Al Dente when it reached the recommended cooking time. I let it cook a minute longer because that is how my family likes it.

: Fresh
The taste of the spaghetti alone, with no sauce tasted like it was freshly made because it had a hint of dirt. Not a dirty smell, the smell of farmers market, if you know what I mean.

: Excellent
After draining, and not rinsing the spaghetti I added it to my home-made sauce (3 organic tomatoes, 1 small can of tomato paste, seasoning (grounded by hand), sauteed onions, garlic and diced carrots) and let it rest for a few minutes. In the picture you can see the spaghetti near the bottom is already absorbing the sauce. It held the sauce very nicely.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
