Valentino Pasta

The Plan In Action. Eat Pasta, Help A Kid.


We set the bar high for our small batch pasta. From the beginning part of our mission, besides spreading carby goodness across the land was to do good as well. I chose to help those that are hungry in the US, specifically children. We do this in a couple of ways. We support National organizations like No Kid Hungry, and Feeding America as well as local food banks. It’s so humbling and rewarding to be able to do this. If you bought pasta or a holiday gift basket from us this season you helped. That picture is Marie making a …

One Year Later…


It was one year ago today I made the first post on this site. What a year it’s been! I started putting the idea together in October and  November 2011 and was ready to announce to the world on Dec 22, 2011. Little did I know it wouldn’t be until then end of April before our first batch of artisan pasta was ready to be sold. If I would’ve known that, I might not be typing this today. I wanted to recap and remember a few things from this year and preserve them on the inter webs for all to …

Simple San Marzano Sauce- Basic Tomato Sauce


              This is our go to red sauce these days. I like it because when it’s not cooked down for hours it shows off the flavor of the tomatoes and doesn’t have that heavy feel or taste. It also really compliments an artisan made pasta instead of hiding it under tons of garlic and spices. If you start with good quality San Marzano tomatoes, and remember Rule 1 and Rule 2 you’ll be eating great in no time flat!   Simple San Marzano Tomato Sauce   Ingredients: 1 lb Valentino Pasta 1 28 oz …

Mac and Cheese…Bring The Awesome


              When you combine the carby goodness of Valentino Pasta with cheesy goodness you get magic. You get comfort. You get…I got it… You get carby cheesy awesomeness. Yes, that’s it. Carby. Cheesy. Awesomeness. You have been warned. In a dish where the pasta can be an afterthought using an artisan pasta makes more difference than you may think. A good small batch pasta that has been extruded through brass dies and dried slowly will give a great chew and texture, as well as hold more cheese (bonus!). The pasta should be a part …

Like a Phoenix…Sort Of


            *Crickets* So sorry for the lack of action here lately but it’s been crazy!! Machine problems etc have had us scrambling and unfortunately missing most of you! I’m happy to say we will be at the last two weeks of Glenwood Sunday Market, and hope to have the online store up in some capacity soon. I will also be working on a few new recipes for Fall. If you are still there, stay tuned! Bueller?…Bueller?

Rigatoni Wars- A Pictorial Assualt On Cheap Pasta


You may have seen these here and there on our  facebook page and in our Twitter feed. I wanted to put  the nearly famous rigatoni trash talk pictures all in one place for your viewing pleasure. I made these for two primary reasons- 1. I’m witty 2. To show some of the differences between artisan pasta and industrial stuff. Yes, even in the small batch pasta world you usually get what you pay for. If you haven’t yet you should get some of the good stuff and see for yourself.                     …

Ziti with Sausage, Heirloom Zucchini & Caramelized Onion


We gave out copies of this recipe at a recent farmers market and quite a few people commented on how great it was. The ziti with all its rustic charm really lets you appreciate the carby goodness here. It’s also one of my favorite types of recipes for a good artisan pasta. It’s seasonal, simple, flavorful and lets the pasta shine. If you need to you can substitute regular zucchini for the heirloom variety. Ingredients: 1 lb Valentino Pasta 1 – 2 Costata Romanesco (Heirloom Zucchini) Cut in 1/2 Inch Slices ½ Lb Herbed or Italian Sausage 1 Medium Red …

The 1000 Lb Challenge (not weight loss related, so exhale)


from sheeshoo on Flickr So, if you’ve looked at the first post here, the Mission tab, or read one of my two (to date ) pasta interviews you will see that giving back and feeding hungry kids in America has been a part of this since the beginning. People have really responded to it. Just to be perfectly clear- Giving back will never be an excuse to sell sub par pasta, or get people to buy something they wouldn’t otherwise. Delicious artisan made pasta is and always will be our first priority. Small batch carby goodness for you… that’s why …

Whole Wheat Pasta Salad-Grilled and Raw with Sherry Vinaigrette


We made this for a farmer’s market this past week, and it got good reviews so I thought I’d share the recipe. We used whole wheat pasta, but traditional would work just as well. I also think traditional pasta  stores better if you plan on making it a couple of days ahead or eating it over a few days. These are the vegetables we used, but it’s really up to what you like and what’s in season.   Ingredients 1 lb Valentino Pasta 3 Cups Seasonal Vegetables, Grilled & Chopped (we used zucchini, green beans & carrots) 1 Pint Grape …
