Our pantry

Here you will find some of the Mamma Sina's recipes with useful suggestions to bring to the table the Sorelle Salerno handmade pasta. The first advice of Mamma Sina for all the recipes is always the rule 1 - 100: for every 100 grams of dry pasta to cook, you have to pour a liter of water into the pot and the salt should always be poured after the water has reached boiling and before "lowering / throwing" the dough. This allows the dough to cook uniformly. The pasta should always be drained about a couple of minutes before the cooking time indicated, as it is better to sauté it in the pan with the sauce that has been prepared, in order to obtain an extraordinary well-flavored dish and pasta al dente. Always keep some cooking water which could be used to complete the preparation in the pan. Finally, get mad at taking care of the dishes to amaze your guests, because as Mamma Sina always says "even the eye wants its part".
