Cooking and Tips

Two cooking times The package indicates two times: stick to the first, shorter, if you choose to drain the pasta and finish cooking it in a pan, in the oven, or in any other way; instead, follow the second cooking time, longer, to season it and serve it directly after simply boiling it in the pot.

Each type doubles in weight and volume For this reason, the average recommended raw portion is 60 grams.

The cooking water can be reserved and reused for other preparations Broths, soups, sautéed vegetables... Add an extra touch to your dishes with aromatic hints of spirulina or turmeric with Sarawak pepper. This last one, unsalted, can also become an excellent golden milk.

Our pasta does not overcook and remains intact even the next day If there is any leftover don’t throw it away! Put it to the test, its structure always remains al dente, even the day after you’ve cooked it. Try it warm or at room temperature for your summer recipes or a quick lunch break.

Bontasana pasta is suitable for all preparations Do not limit your creativity. For example, cook it the same way you would prepare risotto, adding liquid a little at a time: besides preserving its nutritional properties, the natural presence of starch will make every sauce richer and creamier. Au Gratin, in the oven, it will retain its structure ensuring a result that is always a winner.

Our extruder dies are entirely made of bronze “Entirely” means that not only the disc, but also the inserts, are made of bronze, which is essential for obtaining a quality product that respects tradition: slower processing and longer drying times allow to achieve uniform pasta sheets, with an ideal surface porosity sauces and seasonings to cling on. Also, the designs were created specifically by a master die-caster for Bontasana.

Recipes and cooking suggestions

White Corn Maccheroni with Brussels Sprouts and Fried Artichoke Hearts, Serves 4

One box of Bontasana White Corn Maccheroni 100 grams Brussels sprouts 1–2 tbs Tuscan kale pesto or other green pesto 30 grams extra virgin olive oil 4 artichokes 1 garlic clove Zest of 1⁄2 organic lemon Oil for frying q. s. Salt to taste Clean and cut the Brussels sprouts into slices and boil them in salted water for about 6 minutes.

Clean the artichokes, remove the harder outer leaves (you can boil them and serve them with oil and salt as an appetizer). Clean and peel the stems with a potato peeler.

In a pan, heat the extra virgin olive oil and sauté the garlic until golden brown. Drain the sprouts with a skimmer spoon (keep the cooking water), add them to the pan, and continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes. Set aside.

Now boil the artichoke stems in the water you have kept.

Transfer the well-drained artichoke stems to the mixer with a pinch of salt, the lemon zest, and the garlic previously cooked. Blend until creamy, then add the Tuscan kale pesto and mix.

In a saucepan, heat the sunflower or extra virgin olive oil that you will need to fry the artichokes.

Cut the artichokes in half, remove the inner hairy choke, place the flat base on the cutting board and thinly slice them. Fry the artichokes in oil for 3–5 minutes, then transfer them to a plate lined with a paper sheet. Keep them warm and add salt at the end.

Meanwhile, boil the White Corn Maccheroni.

Drain and transfer to a pan with the Brussels sprouts and stir in the artichoke and pesto cream. Serve the White Corn Maccheroni hot with the fried artichoke hearts.
