How to get the best from our products.

Bearing in mind the information contained in the previous chapter, even if the pasta looks intact before dropping it into the pan, to prevent from any breakage during cooking , we recommend the following cooking tips.

  1. Use a large pan
    with plenty of water, at least 1.5 l for every 100 g of long or short pasta and for gnocchi and at least 2 l per 100 g of nest pasta.
  2. When water begins to boil
    add 5 g of sea salt per litre of water, when it starts to boil rapidly add a teaspoon of oil for shapes when indicated, then drop the pasta or gnocchi into the pan, increasing the heat to compensate for the drop in temperature.
  3. Use
    a wooden spoon to stir carefully.
  4. Comply with
    the boiling time indicated on the package.
  5. In the following table
    remembering that they are only indications (the cooking time is also aff ected by the amount of water used, the amount of chlorine it contains, the intensity of the heat and the altitude), we provide the boiling and resting times as well as serving suggestions for each shape. After the recommended boiling time, switch off the heat and leave the product in the water, with the lid on, stirring delicately every so oft en, until the desired cooking level is reached.


The use of the same film to package our many diff erent shapes allows us to give general cooking indications and not shape-specifi c indications. To better assist our consumers, on the back of the package, below the barcode, you will find the cooking and resting times, which are also given in the table below. In fact, as explained in the previous chapter, to prevent the starch from escaping into the water during cooking (because it contains no additives or thickeners, our pasta undergoes more stress), simply follow our suggestions.

pay attention to cooking time for this shape to fi nd the right balance between the very thin ends and the thicker centre (which will consequently be very al dente, a characteristic of this shape).

For all shapes, when cooked, drain quickly, add sauce and serve hot.
