Description Reviews Our Black Pepper pasta is a consumer favorite! This pasta adds a little spice to any dish. Black pepper has demonstrated impressive antioxidant and antibacterial effects yet another way in which this wonderful seasoning promotes the health of the digestive tract. And not only does black pepper help you derive the most benefit from your food, the outer layer of the peppercorn stimulates the breakdown of fat cells, keeping you slim while giving you energy to burn. Pair with one of the many Pasta Mama's sauce mixes that fits your personal taste! Mix & match have fun! If you'd like a little of Mama's guidance, she suggests Pasta Mama's Alfredo Cheese Sauce, Italian Tomato Sauce, Creamy Basil Sauce, Creamy Garlic Sauce, Creamy Tomato-Basil Sauce, or Lemon-Thyme Pesto. You could also add veggies, seafood, meat, poultry, and/or cheese. Cooking instructions: Add pasta to a large pot of boiling water. Stir. After water returns to a boil, cook for 2 1/2 minutes. Wider pasta will take a little longer...3-4 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain and rinse with hot water (for salads rinse with cold water), drain again and toss immediately with butter, oil or sauce.
