Pasta Fresca: Fresh Pasta
The world’s favorite comfort food, pasta is the heart and soul of Italian cuisine. Packages of dry noodles can be found in most kitchen pantries, but if you want an authentic Italian flavor, pasta fresca takes ordinary pasta to new heights. Meaning “fresh pasta” in Italian, pasta fresca has a distinctly tender and slightly chewy texture that marries well with creamy sauces. You’ll feel like you’re eating Nonna’s handmade pasta with the fresh pasta available at Supermarket Italy!
Cooking With Fresh Pasta
Because of the extra liquid from eggs and water, pasta fresca cooks in half the time needed to cook dry pasta noodles. Pasta fresca contains eggs and additional water, which gives it a chewy tenderness that pairs well with creamy sauces like carbonara or Alfredo. Try using tube shaped noodles such as rigatoni, or spirals of cavatappi and fusilli. Cover fresh pasta in rich cream sauces or a simple mix of extra virgin olive oil, fresh tomatoes, and grated Parmesan for a delicious meal.
