Al Dente Pasta ends 3/26/12

Al Dente Pasta is the passion of Monique Deschaine. Monique grew up spending summers soaking up the European culture. Her mothers company of France helped to teach Monique the early love for pasta and the earliest foundation for the creation of Al Dente Pasta. Monique spent many hours rolling out pasta with her husband Dennis in a friends kitchen hoping that the pasta would dry before the next sunrise. The dedication to taste and quality for Al Dente pasta has not changed from those early days. The pair of Monique and Dennis created a "tender but firm" Northern Italian style pasta that cooks up to al dente perfection in a mere 3 minutes.

That three minutes should spark the interest of busy wives and moms like myself. We know that the day goes fast and that time is a precious commodity. If we can find some where we can save time in our busy schedule then all the better. In fact if that extra time can help create a wonderful tasty meal for my family then not only am I happy but so is my hubby and family.

Al dente Pasta offers a variety of products to the market of delicious Italian foods. They have delicious pastas, sauces, and gift packs as well. We were able to try a few of their newer products including whole wheat linguine, BonaChia and Spinach Pappardelle. Several of these products were new to my family but they were eager to taste some delicious pasta as much as I was and so we set off on an adventure to prepare some delicious pasta that as a family we would dine on.

BonaChia is what I would consider a short little pasta that packs a big bite. I loved how easily it cooked up ad provided us with a taste that we all enjoyed.

The Papperdilla at Al Dente Pasta comes in a variety of flavors including egg noodle, garlic and herb and the one we received spinach. Yummy for sure. We used a recipe off of the Al Dente website and enjoyed it very much You should try the Roasted cauliflower, pepper and Serrano ham recipe as well. I can tell you that you would be pleasantly surprised with the delicious taste it packs within the pasta and veggies.
