    Pasta Tavola fresh pasta is made daily in-store and does not undergo a drying process. Fresh pasta is light in texture and flavour and cooks in a fraction of the time it takes to cook dried pasta. Fresh pasta sold in the refrigerator section of grocery stores often contain additives and preservatives to prolong its shelf life. Pasta Tavola pasta is made from the highest quality ingredients and is free of all additives and preservatives.

    8) How long will my pasta keep in the refrigerator?

    All of our fresh pasta can keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days from the date of purchase.

    9) Can I freeze my pasta?

    Yes. Simply transfer the pasta to a ziplock bag and place in your freezer.  Pasta will keep in your freezer for up to 1-3 months.  When cooking fresh pasta, always cook from a frozen state. DO NOT DEFROST.

    10) How do I cook  fresh pasta?

    Fresh pasta requires a large pot of salted boiling water, which allows the noodles to move and separate during the cooking process. For best results when cooking Pasta Tavola fresh pasta we recommend following “The Golden Rules”.

    11) How do I stop my pasta from clumping?

    Due to the more delicate nature of fresh pasta compared to dried pasta some clumping during cooking may occur. Clumping happens when starch molecules on the noodles absorb water and create a glue-like substance. By following our “Golden Rules” for cooking fresh pasta, this problem can be solved.

    12) Does Pasta Tavola only offer fresh pasta products?

    While the heart of Pasta Tavola is our authentic fresh pastas, Pasta Tavola is more than just pasta!
