Ultra Grain Pasta is delicious and easy to open and it is very good with sauce. I personally don't like it without the sauce, but with the sauce, it is good. The pasta is very healthy but still tastes good.

Sebastian Perez, 7th grade:
I like this Ultra Grain Pasta; it looks and tastes like ordinary pasta. I didn't know until after that it was Ultra Grain. There is too much sauce for the pasta. The sauce is awesome – really good – and the pasta tastes much better with the sauce. It also has meatballs. I would really recommend this product.

Rae Killebrew, 7th grade:
Ultra Grain Pasta has a kind of sticky texture. It has a form of squiggly thick lines and tastes plain. Adding the sauce makes it taste very good. It has pepper in it, which makes it very spicy. With the addition of meat, it is very delicious.

Christian Stankovic, 7th grade:
This pasta tastes great and unique. It has a great texture that makes my mouth water. It looks very pleasing. Together with sauce, it creates a taste that makes me want more. I would definitely recommend this product to any pasta lover.

Natalie Cleland, 7th grade:
Ultra Grain Pasta is OK. At first, I didn't know it was whole grain, so that is good, but it didn't taste like anything. The packaging isn't very pretty, but it's cool because the sauce is separate. The sauce is amazing, and overall, it's good.

Noah Bearman, 7th grade:
The texture is too rough to resemble plain pasta. Also, the taste is almost the same as whole grain. The packaging is OK, but could use brighter colors to attract more people. Personally, I would buy regular whole grain noodles.

Amy Rodriguez, 7th grade:
It's slippery, dry and tasty. It smells like dough, tastes like regular pasta, looks like lasagna, attracts adults, has easy packaging, and is healthy.

Jeffrey Brown, 7th grade:
I think Ultra Grain Pasta is mostly healthy but plain. With the sauce, it is likely unhealthy. I would agree this is for people who love pasta.

Maddy Behr, 7th grade:
I don't really like it that much. It has a very grainy taste, so I guess people that like that will like this. I wasn't very surprised that it is healthy since it tastes like it. The packaging is a waste of plastic. I wasn't very enjoyable, but it is better when you add the sauce.

Nick Pigozzi, 7th grade:
Ultra Grain Pasta tastes very much like normal pasta and has a great, rich flavor. The sauce is probably my favorite part; it is very tasty and has meatballs in it. Without the sauce though, it isn't that great. I would suggest this product to any pasta lovers. I like this product.

Marty Leoni, 7th grade:
It is really good. I thought it was going to be bad, but it has a very good sauce. It is packed very efficiently and is portable. It would be liked by people 25-30 who work in an office. It is good!

Mario Villegas, 7th grade:
Everything is the sauce because the noodles by themselves are bad. With the sauce, it is good.

Blaise Filippini, 7th grade:
It dries out in your mouth, and it also has a weird shape. It's good sauce, spicy with a good garlic flavor. The pasta is bad though. Sell the sauce alone; with the sauce it's good.

Russell Snapp, 7th grade:
Ultra Grain Pasta is really good. I think it tastes exactly like regular pasta, which is good, considering what it's made of. The sauce is also delicious, and the product has really cool packaging.

Ashley Roberts, 7th grade:
The noodles have a good taste to them, and the sauce is OK. It has a decent taste with the sauce, but overall it isn't that good. To me, it doesn't meet the standards.

Michael Matthew, 7th grade:
Ultra Grain Pasta is packaged in an average container that doesn't stand out. The pasta itself tastes like regular pasta. The only difference is that it has more grain. It is not really necessary to buy because it tastes the same as regular pasta.

Juliette Shesgreen, 7th grade:
A first look at the pasta is that it looks unique, like a type of lasagna. Although it looks good and different, it is not; it is like any type of pasta. The only thing unique is the way it is made with an easy to make method with the instructions. I would recommend this to any worker or mother that needs an easy and fast way to make pasta.

Rohan Murray, 7th grade:

It tastes like Italian spaghetti, but the aftertaste of the sauce is sour. It tastes like vegetable and tomato soup. It is good, but needs more meat.

Liliana Vasquez, 7th grade:
When you look at the pasta, it looks appealing and something you want to eat. When you taste it, it's as good as it looks. Even if it's good, it's quick and easy to prepare. It should be a cheap product because it's easy to prepare and good. Without the sauce, it doesn't taste good, but adding the sauce makes it really good.

Jack Brennan, 7th grade:
This pasta is good. It smells good and tastes the same as regular pasta. There is no way to tell that it is made from healthier things. It is easy to open, and it is perfect.

Mary Bauer, 7th grade:
The pasta doesn't taste different than regular pasta, but it is healthier. The sauce given is too much for the pasta given. The sauce gives the pasta a lot of flavor and the meatballs taste wonderful. It also smells great. All in all, I think Ultra Grain Pasta is great.

Nick Giangreco, 7th grade:
These Ultra Grain noodles are very good. I was not able to tell that it is whole grain. The sauce is good and has many good little meatballs. The packaging looks very good and is something I'd buy. I like this product.

Xavier Amandaji, 7th grade:
Without anything else, it tastes pretty bland. It looks pretty healthy, and it is made with whole grain flour. It doesn't really taste like whole grain though. I think people who would buy it would buy it to stay healthy. It tastes better with the sauce. This product will make a lot (of sales). It is very good.

Daphney Ambrose, 7th grade:
The packaging is good for traveling. I can tell there is pepper in the sauce; the meatball, beef sausages are kind of chewy. The taste of the noodles is nice with the combination of the sauce.

Jose Gonzalez, 7th grade:
The pasta tastes awesome. It does taste like traditional pasta and it tastes good. The sauce is very tangy and meatballs go very well with it. I would buy it anytime I go to the store. It's very rich in flavor.

Sucheta Bandyopadhyay, 7th grade:
The pasta is very soft and yummy. I would recommend it to young people because there is a lot of oil in the sauce. It is in a plastic container, and you have to microwave it first before you eat it. The pasta is separate from the sauce. It is yummy, so enjoy!
