Need an easy yet elegant work night dinner solution? You forgot it was date night and need to impress? Last minute dinner guests? A Saporista Italian meal kit is the answer. Our combination of authentic bronze dried pasta from Gragnano, and delicious artisan made sauces from Salento creates an impressive Italian meal in minutes. Just boil a pan of salty water, cook your pasta, choose your sauce, stir it in, sprinkle it with our artisanal 24 month aged parmesan and serve. If you fancy, you can season it with fresh herbs, or stir in some olives, or even add in some cooked meat, fish or vegetables, but there's really no need to complicate it. The quality ingredients will showcase themselves. The bronze die and slow drying method in the traditional pasta making process creates a rough texture that is perfect for holding sauce. The sauces themselves are inspired by simple traditional recipes that let the flavours of the fresh local produce sing through. This kit will provide a meal with a difference, and only takes minutes to prepare.
