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.

Creamy Carrot Soup with Spirulina Pipe Rigate and Puffed Amaranth, Serves 4

One box of Bontasana White Corn and Spirulina Pipe Rigate
3 yams
300 grams carrots
2 leeks
200 millilitres coconut milk
1 liter Pipe Rigate pasta cooking water
2 grams turmeric
2 tablespoons puffed amaranth, lightly toasted in a dry pan
Extra virgin olive oil to taste
Dried, ground thyme or 2–3 sprigs fresh thyme
Salt and pepper to taste

First, cook the Spirulina Pipe Rigate. Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil and cook the pasta for 8 minutes once it reaches a boil. Once cooked, drain the Pipe rigate but reserve the cooking water and set aside. To prevent the pasta from sticking, coat with a little olive oil.

Wash and peel the carrots and yams, wash one leek and cut it into 1-cm pieces. Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add a little oil along with the vegetables with a pinch of salt and a crack of black pepper and brown them for about 10 minutes. Add a little of the Pipe rigate cooking water to prevent the mixture from sticking. After a few minutes, pour the remaining water into the pan and cook the vegetables for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Pour in the coconut cream, add the turmeric and combine well until you have thick, homogenous cream. Keep warm.
