Noodles pack their own hearty flavors

Rush-Hour Remedies

* Item: San Giorgio flavored pasta

* What you get: 12 ounces

* Cost: $1.69

* Preparation time: 7 to 9 minutes

* Review: San Giorgio has added Lemon Pepper Penne Regate and Roasted Garlic & Red Bell Pepper Rotelle to its long-standing line of pasta. Unlike many flavored pastas, these noodles offer robust flavors well suited to almost any dish, including the recipes listed on the box. I resisted the temptation to add garlic to the warm Rotelle with Chicken and Tomato Fresca and was glad I did, because the roasted garlic flavor of the noodles really came through. I substituted imitation crab meat (as suggested) and added steamed asparagus to the Penne & Shrimp Salad and found it a refreshingly cool ending to a hot summer day.
