Review: You might call Annie's Homegrown pastas macaroni with a message. The Connecticut-based company promotes environmental and other causes through its "totally natural" products. All are made without preservatives, often using organically grown ingredients. Entries in the company's Internet guest book show that most people hear about Annie's products from a friend. So take it from me - this is good pasta. It's fresh and cheesy. The bunnies were a big hit with my little girls. And I couldn't help but smile at the peace signs. We found Annie's products at Safeway. You can also find them at natural-foods stores.
