We definitely understand that you don’t have time to make fresh pasta every time. Therefore we have a favorite pasta brand, that we buy in the supermarkets when we want a quick and simple meal. We are a big fan of the De Cecco pasta brand, as it has a nice bit, and is not getting too soft! So an easy pasta to get perfectly ‘al dente’

De Cecco offers a wide variety of pasta types, penne, spaghetti, rigatoni, farfalle, etc. etc.. Do you know which pasta fits with the best type of sauce?

A few examples are:

  • Penne and Rigatoni: Thick sauces like a ‘Bolognese / Al Ragu’ and ‘All’Amatriciana’
  • Spaghetti, Tagliatelle, Linguine: Thin sauces like aglio olio, carbonara.
  • Farfalle: Pesto¬†


This is our tomato sieve that we always use! We buy peeled tomato’s in cans and sieve them by ourselves. By doing this you keep all the nice flavors in the sauce! Curious to our full recipe of tomato sauce? See the basic recipe here:¬†
