There’s no denying that pasta is a no-fail dish that can be cooked in many ways. But what better way to make it more inviting by taking it up a notch with Doña Elena Al Dente? It pulls flavors with Italy’s most-prized bronze die-cut technique that creates a rough surface with ridges on the pasta. Less starch but packed with protein, it’s also made with 100 percent durum wheat semolina that provides its “firm to the bite” result after cooking! If you’re preparing this as a part of a holiday feast, Doña Elena Tuna is the perfect pair for almost different types of pasta recipes. Guaranteed without MSG, extenders, or preservatives but still tastes indulgent!
