Review: The good thing about these pasta kits is that you can fit the portions to the number of people you're feeding. With two packets of sauce ingredients and two packets of vegetables, it's easy to divide the bag of noodles and make enough for two or three people. For four to six servings, you simply throw everything in the pot. In both cases, you add milk and water. Both the Alfredo Primavera and the Sun-Dried Tomato Basil flavors scored high marks at our house. Though a little salty, the tomato-basil sauce was especially good. Other flavors include Italian Herb Butter and Tomato Cream Rosado.
