FAQ

Storage

1Can you freeze pasta?
Yes. Some of our pasta packages can be frozen and are labelled with "Product is suitable for freezing before cooking”. Some of our packs do not recommend freezing after cooking. Our pasta has a ‘Use by’ date and should either be frozen or consumed by this date. It is recommended to keep pasta refrigerated below 5⁰C.
2Can I store leftover pasta in the refrigerator after cooking?
It is recommended to consume pasta immediately once opened.

Preparation

1How do I cook pasta?
Our pasta cooking instructions can vary per variety. We recommend preparing the pasta as per the package cooking instructions specified on pack.
2How can I prevent pasta from sticking together?
Our head pasta makers recommend adding one tablespoon of oil, either olive or vegetable, to boiling water prior to adding the pasta. Once you have added the pasta, keep the water at a gentle boil stirring frequently.
3Is there a way to prevent filled pasta from falling apart?
To prevent filled pasta falling apart, it is important to keep water at a gentle boil, enough to see some bubbles around the pasta. Continue to stir gently and avoid overcooking the pasta.
