Tuscanini authentic Italian products imported from Italy I got a variety of products which include Tomato Paste 7.05 ounce tube which is made with premium Tuscan tomatoes that is natural, gluten-free, kosher for Passover, and Non-GMO. Gigli made with 100% durum wheat semolina the way you cook it is for 10 to 12 minutes or until desired tenderness and kosher for Passover. Fusilli tricolor is made with 100% durum wheat semolina in a spiral shape that you cook 10 to 12 minutes or until desired tenderness along with being kosher for Passover. Conchiglie tricolor is made with 100% durum wheat semolina in a shell shape that cooks in 12 to 14 minutes or until desired tenderness and is kosher for Passover.
My Opinion: I love that these gourmet products are made with quality ingredients and pasta is good for energy and romantic nights with a loved one. You have many things you can do with pasta and tomato paste and I love these ones I got they were all good.
