All About Pasta

AND COOKING TIPS

Our fresh DRIED pasta is best when used within a few days of purchase;

however, it can keep for over a week if refrigerated.

The Italian Apron GLUTEN-FREE pasta is egg based and does require refrigeration; however, it can extend the shelf life to refrigerate ANY of our pastas, but keep in mind some shapes are susceptible to breaking after 3 days.

 

Our pasta can be stored FROZEN for up to 1-2 months - just be sure to keep frozen until it's time to cook.

AL DENTE or not to be..."al dente" is pasta with a bite of firmness and is most authentic to Italy,

but really it is a matter of preference for you! 

PASTA COOK TIMES are given in a range. Example, 8-10 minutes. So if you like pasta al dente, cook closer to the 8 minute time frame. Otherwise, cook it longer. ALWAYS taste your pasta to your liking...don't rely on cook time!

SALT YOUR WATER and remember 1:1:4...for ONE pound of pasta, use ONE heaping tablespoon of Kosher SALT in 4 Quarts of water. It makes a huge impact in flavor! Adjust it to your liking, but do it once and you'll never forget it again.
