Winter Snowflake Pasta
Last fall, a notable pasta producer approached us with a product we couldn’t refuse: adorable, pumpkin-shaped Fall Zucchette Pasta at an unbelievable price. We snapped that pasta right up and struck a deal with the producer to develop more seasonally enchanting shapes for the 2017 holiday season. Well, folks, the 2017 holiday season is here – and so is Trader Joe’s Winter Snowflake Pasta.
Made with nothing but Canadian-grown durum wheat semolina, this Pasta is naturally off-white, so extruding it into a snowflake shape makes perfect, wintry sense. Speaking of extrusion, our supplier cuts no corners in making Trader Joe’s Winter Snowflake Pasta. Most pasta manufacturers extrude their pasta dough through plastic or Teflon “dies” (stamps) to give the pasta its desired shape, but our supplier extrudes Winter Snowflake Pasta through bronze dies. As the dough passes through, the bronze leaves very tiny but significant abrasions on its surface, making the Pasta more porous and rough – and therefore great at absorbing your favorite sauces or oils.
Only at Trader Joe's can you find bronze-cut Pasta for the gold-medal price of $1.99 per 14 ounce package, while it lasts.
