how can i cook the pasta? is it difficult?
Cooking pasta is easy!
Just follow these simple steps:
1- Fill a medium/large pot with water and put it on fire
2- Wait until the water is boiling, then add a pinch of thick salt
3- Pour a spoon of olive oil on the water and add the pasta in
4- Leave the fire on, and count the time needed for cooking the pasta
5- Take the pasta out when the time is over!
But don't be scared, we also provide cooking instructions with each order!
why i need to order 2 days in advance?
Every order it's always fresh made just for you, the same day as the delivery!
To be sure we have everything fresh and at the highest quality,
we buy everything we need in small batches,
and requires one or two days in advance.
How many grams is enough for 1 person?
We suggest a portion of 150gr - 200gr for each person, to enjoy a good plate of pasta!
(But you're free to cook more, of course!)
Why Is 600gr the minimum order?
Handmade pasta requires a balance of ingredients, and we set 300g as our proportion, but requires at least double (600gr) to be perfect!
i can't cook all the pasta, can i store it?
Sure, of course!
Our uncooked fresh pasta can be stored easily in FREEZER! Can last up to three month without losing its taste and texture.
Just cook it directly to boiling water, like it was just delivered,
with additional few seconds on the regular cooking time!

200gr of our Sauces is perfectly enough for our minimum order of 600gr of pasta!

Both Pesto and Tomato sauce are freshly made, and can last
up to two month in fridge sealed (lab tested) and one week after being opened!

Our Gluten-free pasta is made using a mix of different flours and has
the same taste of the traditional one!
We tried our best to find out the perfect balance in the recipe!

We prepare the gluten free pasta with different equipment in order to avoid any contact with traditional flours.We are the first in line when is concerning the safety in our food!
Is the gluten-free pasta different in cooking and storage?
The gluten-free pasta is a bit more fragile to handle, due to the different properties of the dough,
but cooking and store is easy as the other one!
