Casa Barelli Porcini Mushroom & Truffle Triangolis has been praised by home cooks
Filled with egg pasta made with soft wheat flour and durum wheat semolina, the pastas are filled individually with porcini mushrooms and truffle oil – an authentic recipe created from the Piedmont region of Italy – the homeland of truffle.
And it’s not hard to see why it’s become a deliciously cheap staple in many family homes after the pasta was crowned the 2015 Product of the Year.
Many foodies shared their views, as well as the ingredients they usually include in their pasta.
‘I hope Aldi never takes this off their shelves. Such an easy and fast meal that tastes [amazing],’ a woman said, revealing she usually adds butter, cherry tomatoes, green vegetables and cheese to the dish.

One mother said: ‘My daughter is vegetarian and we tried these and they were amazing. I just did a quick creamy, blue cheese sauce for on top.’
Another home cook said she serves her pasta with a ‘dash of garlic, olive oil and burnt butter, topped with Parmesan cheese.
Many foodies even compared the supermarket pre-made packaged meal to ‘fine-dining’ pasta, as it contains ‘high quality’ ingredients.
