How Do You Like Your Pasta? AL DENTE!, Celebrating National Pasta Month

Just right before the month of October ends Doña Elena Al Dente invited bloggers to celebrate the National Pasta Month. Kwento Ni Toto is a pasta lover but this is the first time that we've heard of a celebration that recognizes pasta and not just a single day but whole month celebration. It is great that we've managed to be in the event and know what it is all about. Since the name of the brand pertains to an Italian term, attendees thought of this for sure “How do you like your pasta?” Of course we like it AL DENTE!

So, why celebrate National Pasta Month? For one reason that I've heard is that ‘pasta’ is a global food consumed by many in all five continents. Pasta has unquestionable merits as it is appropriate for a dynamic and healthy lifestyle, capable of meeting both primary food requirements while creating a high-level of gastronomy. The appreciation month is not only celebrated in the Philippines but also in some parts of the world.

For this year’s celebration, Doña Elena Al Dente invited everyone to take their pasta experience to a whole new level and to start with is choosing the pasta to use. Of course we want a very nice outcome of what we’re going to experience with our pasta. RJ Ledesma, an actor, host, editor and writer shared his pasta experience.
Why choose Doña Elena Al Dente? Here are some of the reasons why.
  • It is the only Artisan Quality Italian pasta.
  • It is made of high quality, 100% durum wheat semolina or hard wheat. Only pasta made from Durum Wheat can be considered al dente.
  • It was made through the artisan way of cooking pasta which is slow drying process and not subjected to high heat. It uses a special bronze dies which leaves a rough surface that creates ridges on the pasta. These ridges help sauces stick to the pasta better.
  • It has 13% protein which is the result of the slow-cooking process which preserves its nutrients.
  • It is also GMO-free, 100% all natural.
During the appreciation event held at BlackBoard, Chef Michel Cottabaren shared three (3) delectable new recipes using Doña Elena Al Dente Penne Rigate, Doña Elena Al Dente Fettucini, and Doña Elena Al Dente Lasagna.  Too bad we’re not able to see the whole process but hey you can still try the recipe shared by Doña Elena Al Dente, the Pasta Mediterraneo using Doña Elena Olive Oil and Doña Elena Mediterranean products or the Shrimp and Pasta Salad with Creamy Sesame Dressing using Doña Elena Al Dente Fusilli. See the recipes below.

Doña Elena Al Dente got a tip for all pasta lovers, “Don’t put oil on your pasta when boiling to see the quality of your pasta.” Doña Elena Al Dente does not require oil because it doesn't stick together.
Doña Elena variants include Spaghetti (500g), Fettuccine (500g), Lasagna (500g), Penne Rigate (500g and 250g) and Fusilli (500g and 250g).
