In new line, some pasta flavors fail to find favor


* Item: Mueller's Savory Collection Flavored Pasta

* What you get: 6 servings

* Cost: About $2.25

* Preparation time: 5 to 8 minutes stove top

* Review: I think flavored pastas are one of the most versatile products on supermarket shelves. As a fan, I was looking forward to trying Mueller's new line. But Pesto Linguine and Pesto Cavatappi were the only winners in the bunch. Mueller may be on to something there, since there aren't a lot of decent basil-flavored pastas on the mass market. But the other flavors were disappointing. The Lemon Pepper Rigate, Roasted Garlic & Herb Rotelle and Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Pennette just didn't taste that good.
