Frozen bread sticks earn cold shoulder

Rush-Hour Remedies

* Item: Rosetto Breadsticks

* What you get: 8 servings

* Cost: About $2

* Preparation time: 30 seconds to 3 minutes in the microwave, 6 to 8 minutes conventional oven

* Review: On the package, these frozen bread sticks looked extremely appetizing. On the table, they weren't. We tried the Buttery Garlic Filled and the Parmesan Cheese Filled. The word "filled" seems to be the misnomer here. The cheese-filled were merely sprinkled with Parmesan. The garlic bread sticks had a strangely bitter taste. The bread itself was basically tasteless, as if someone forgot to add salt to the dough. Though they might have been softer if cooked in the microwave, baked according to the directions in the oven, the bread sticks were cracker-crisp. These are definitely a disappointing effort from Rosetto, which has made a name for itself with its frozen pasta dishes.
