<br> Pasta Refrigerate pasta immediately upon delivery. Any pasta not eaten within 2 days of delivery should be frozen. All of Raffetto’s pasta can be frozen up to 2 months, and if stored frozen should be cooked frozen. <br> Sauces All sauces last in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, and may be frozen for up to 2 months.
<br> Pasta The amount of salt in the water is very important. Raffetto’s does not put any salt in the dough; therefore it is critical to add salt to the water for maximum flavor. Add approximately 1½ tbsp. of salt per 10-qt pot. <br> + Cooking times for pasta:
- • Noodles - If Fresh: 3 minutes. If Frozen: 4 minutes
- • Medium Ravioli - 6-8 minutes
(Note - Ravioli must be broken apart prior to cooking) <br> After straining the pasta, Raffetto's suggests tossing your pasta in a small amount of olive oil to keep it from sticking. Avoid "shocking" the pasta with cold water as that will wash away some of the flavor.
Sauces Heat Sauces in a non-reactive saucepan over low to medium heat, stirring frequently, until simmering hot. Pesto should never be heated and can be placed on pasta either cold, or ideally at room temperature. A good rule of thumb is to remove pesto from your refrigerator when you fill the pot with water.
