Amori Fresh Pasta


There is nothing most yummy than fresh Pasta


Amori is a very elegant shape, we are doing this shape for many years, it is a total success since the first day we cut our first batch, our regular customers buy it many times because the great meal they accomplish with it.

Kids love short pasta because it is easy for them to grab, it is fun and the cork screw like shape in the Amori Fresh Pasta is very attractive too.

Preparing Amori Fresh Pasta with a sauce this shape allows the sauce to get inside of the shape, making a very savory bite.

You can make great pasta salads. This particular picture of the Amori Fresh Pasta in three color has roasted sweet red pepper, garlic and fresh parsley that has very attractive color too and it is very inviting to the eye plus the smell makes an extraordinary choice.

At home we use it a lot, once it is cooked we add it to a stew right before we serve to keep the pasta “al dente”.When we cook it we take it before is totally “al dente” so we can add it to meals. If we are serving it as a main course we cook it all the way to “al dente”.

Usually, we cut this Fresh Pasta Amori shape plain, with basil and garlic, sun dried tomato and garlic, sweet roasted red pepper garlic, parsley and garlic, lemon pepper and lemon parsley. All of those are the most common flavors we like to use for this shape.


Canestri Fresh Pasta with Basil , garlic and sun dried tomato

Today we cut CANESTRI Fresh Pasta with fresh basil, garlic and sun dried tomato, very Italian, full of flavor , very aromatic too, this particular shape called CANESTRI resemble a little basket, similar to a shell pasta but a lit of bit deeper shape. Ideal for a short pasta meal with just butter and Parmesan cheese, with the beautiful colors in the mix also is a very good idea for a incredible Pasta Salad, personaly I love to use CANESTRI Fresh Pasta mix in a quick soup I just cook the CANESTRI Fresh Pasta in an already boiling organic vegetable broth until pasta rich “dente” an incredible colorful noodle soup with all that fresh basil, garlic and sun dried tomato create a wonderful meal in no time, love to serve it with just grated Parmesan and garnished with fresh parsley.
