I am getting tired of the changes as well. Every once in a while when I am too tired to cook dinner from scratch, I will cook up some pasta roni and just throw some cooked chicken, bacon, or some other leftover meat and some frozen veggies in with it for our dinner. There was a time many years ago when I could feed the whole family on just one box of pasta roni. Now it takes 3 boxes to feed the family.
They also have done something with their recipe over the years as I find that the fettuccini noodles seem to get rather mushy unless I shorten their cooking time and use a little less water when I cook it.
We buy Buitoni pasta - it’s more expensive, but they use a harder semolina flour and their pasta not only cooks up great, it tastes better than some of the cheaper brands and I find it goes further too. I say that because we get fuller faster when using that brand. You might want to try it.
