Follow heating instructions to ensure product reaches temperature of 160°F.

Step 1

Heat 6 quarts of water to a gentle boil. Add pinch of salt.

Step 2

Add pasta; do not separate uncooked pasta if it sticks together. It will naturally separate while cooking. Cook 3 minutes, and drain.

Step 3

Enjoy the wonderful flavors of my fillings, as we do in Italy: Toss in melted butter or extra virgin olive oil and top with freshly grated cheese.

*If frozen, do not thaw; cook additional 1 minute.

The terrain and climate of this area, with its coast and mountains, create the ideal conditions for growing the world’s most perfect basil.
