Fresh Pasta Tips​

- Always refrigerate fresh pasta. Preservatives are NOT used to prolong shelf life.

- The moist nature of fresh pasta may create condensation in a sealed plastic bag. Avoid this by leaving the bag slightly open.

- Fresh pasta may be frozen, however ensure to separate filled pasta (ravioli, agnolotti, etc.) and freeze pieces individually, then re-bag and keep frozen.

- Frozen fresh pasta should NOT be thawed prior to cooking. Simply place frozen pasta into boiling water.

How to Cook Fresh Pasta

- Always use a large pot with plenty of water when cooking fresh pasta. Water will be absorbed and also evaporates.

- Wait until the water is at a roiling boil before before adding the pasta.

- Salt may be added to the water to bring out the flavour of the pasta. A dash of oil may be added to help prevent fresh pasta from sticking together.

- Stir to keep the pasta from sticking.Once the pasta is placed in the boiling water. Place the lid back on the pot to help bring the water back to a boil. This is essential, because if you do not, the past will be sitting in hot water, resulting in mushy pasta.

- Once the water is boiling again, remove the lid for the remaining cook time - this is always dependent on a wide variety of factors (size, type, thickness of pasta, fresh/frozen, personal preference, etc.). Determining whether your pasta is ready is an ongoing taste-testing process. Once ready, drain the pasta into a colander. 

- Toss the pasta in a warmed pan with your prepared sauce, to marry the flavours together.
