All pasta should be refrigerated 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 should be cooked frozen.
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, and cook gnocchi 3-4 minutes - or until they float. 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.
