How long can I store my pasta?
All items arrive with a "Use By" date on the label, but you should freeze your pasta and sauce if you don't plan to eat it by this date. We recommend freezing the pasta within three days if you know you won't get to it right away.
What do I do if it's frozen?
As a general rule, allow for another minute in the water if you're cooking pasta from frozen. If you can plan ahead, remove the sauce from the freezer the night before and place it in your refrigerator. Otherwise, you can place the container directly in the microwave for 45-60 seconds to loosen it from the edges and add to the pan.
Can I re-heat the cooked pasta dish?
You can really do anything you want, but we recommend doing this in a large pan wide enough to hold the pasta in an even layer. Add a small quantity of water to the pan before adding anything else, heat it until it's simmering on the edge, and add your already cooked pasta/sauce. Use a wooden spoon or spatula and swirl the pan around in a circular motion over the heat. Add water if necessary, but only enough to bring your sauce back to the right consistency. The more water you add, the more your pasta will take it on, too.
If you're more adventurous, try using your leftover dish to make a frittata.
Why does "Pickup Only" mean in checkout?
This is true, if the menu item says this during checkout, it means we've reached our maximum capability for delivery on this particular item and are only offering it as a pickup option at this point in time. You can always reach out to us directly to discuss an alternative.
Do you make gluten-free pasta?
At this stage, we are not offering gluten-free pasta options. It would require us to produce on separate equipment and in a separate kitchen. We plan to have a GF offering in the future.
Do you make vegan options?
Yes! Any vegan option will be indicated in the product description.
What if I'm not home on my delivery day?
Not a worry, just leave us a note during checkout if you need it in a specific location (i.e. a cooler next to the door) or if you'd prefer to arrange for a pickup or delivery on another day. We'll always find an option to get you what you need.
What is al dente?
Literally "to the tooth" or bite, this is the descriptor for how pasta "should" feel when cooked. It should look and feel cooked but remain sturdy, with a slight resistance in the bite - not crunchy or raw. There is an al dente scale and like most things in life, it comes down to your personal preference of whether you like it softer or more firm. Extra crunchy pasta is not our intention and most cooking times have a one minute range of what's indicated in the instructions.
