Made Fresh Daily From Scratch: Our Oven Baked, Too Good To Be True, Pastas
Smiley face

There is no better place to go than Pasta Pantry for a home-cooked dish and there is nothing that screams home-cooked meal more than our mouth-watering, too good to be true, oven baked pastas.

Our Pasticcio uses a the perfect mixture of short pasta cuts, comes in three different homemade sauces (meat, hot italian sausage, and vegetarian) and is baked with kilos upon kilos of Mozza, Parmigano, Pecorino Romano, Ricotta, and Asiago as far as the eye can see.

This is our most famous dish and trust us, you'll know why when you taste it!



Mac N' Cheese is a dish that is served on all ends of the spectrum: you can find it in your mother's kitchen, to Pasta Pantry, to high-end restaurants and hotels.

Pasta Pantry's version of the Mac and Cheese is baked like a casserole in the oven and uses four high end cheeses: Grana Padano Parmigiano, Pecorino Romano, Ricotta, and Asiago. If there's a cheese heaven, this is it.

Want to know the secret to our Mac N Cheese? We go a little heavy on the cream, but how heavy? Well, we can't give up everything, now can we?

Choose a small plate of our baked pasta for $9.95 or an all you can eat large for $12.95 with your choice of sauce. The Pasticcio can be made gluten free for those on a non-gluten diet. For the best value, match it with a salad for only a $13.95!

Hopefully we've inspired you to come down to where you're always going to get "REAL FOOD, REAL FRESH, REAL FAST!"

The 10 Most Important Pasta Tips You'll Ever Need

Since we're dedicated to bringing you the best in everything and anything pasta related, we've written up 10 pasta tips to get the most from your pasta at home. The very first thing you're going to want to start with is picking up some of our homemade pasta. You can see our options for our for our made fresh daily pasta HERE.

Now that you got yourself some of our pasta, here's how to get the most out of your home-cooked meal!

1) Generously salt your pasta water. Do not add salt to the sauce. Your salt water should taste almost like seawater.

2) Do not let your pasta dry off. Drain the water, but don't let it sit. It will start to stick together if you do.

3) Don't rinse your pasta after draining unless you are making cold pasta. The starch and salt on the cooked pasta is crucial to the flavour and richness of a good pasta.

4) Save the pasta water. Add a spoonful of it to your sauce after you have mixed the cooked pasta into it. This will help the sauce adhere to the cooked pasta and will improve each bite!

5) The ratio of pasta to water matters. Having too much water increases the boiling point and can lead to the pasta being cooked too long and being overdone.

6) A perfectly cooked pasta is a little hard to the tooth. If it sticks to your gums, it is overdone. This is called "Al Dente" which means literally "to the tooth."

7) Taste your pasta while it is cooking early and often. It is the only way to be sure you've cooked it correctly!

8) Different sauces go with different pasta shapes. Longer pastas like capellini or spaghetti get thinner sauces and shorter pastas like penne go with thicker sauces.

9) Quality pasta matters. In the unfortunate event that you can't pick up our pasta, try and make your store bought pasta 100% durum wheat semolina.

10) Skip all the aforementioned steps and come into Pasta Pantry! Where you'll always get "REAL FOOD, REAL FRESH, REAL FAST."

See you soon, Sherwood Park!

The weather is getting warmer and warmer every day and we're getting closer and closer to everyone's favourite season, patio season! That means grilling, outdoor cooking, and family gatherings and we have the perfect thing to give your cooking that little extra umpfh! Our Caesar dressing, Creamy Italian dressing, and Pesto! Take them home with you and they'll be your secret weapon this summer! Here's a few ways you can use them in your dishes!

First, all of our sauces make fantastic compliments to any grilled meats. They can be used as a basting sauce or used to marinate just about anything. Particularly, our Caesar and a Salmon go exceptionally well together, but don't be afraid to experiment. The possibilities are deliciously endless.

Pesto Sauce (8 oz - $7.95 / 12 oz - $10.95)
Obviously other than being a delicious substitute (or addition) to tomato sauce, it's also great for replacing tomato sauce on cheese bread or pizza. It is a healthier alternatives to mayonnaise on sandwiches. You can mix it into salads or use it as dip for veggies and it'll compliment those morning eggs like you wouldn't believe!


Caesar / Creamy Italian Dressing (8 oz - $5.96 / 12 oz - $6.95 / 16 oz - $7.95 / 32 oz - $12.95)
Of course, both of our dressings are perfect for sandwiches (remember our secret menu items?), but beyond that, both of them are absolutely delicious over perfectly grilled asparagus, broccoli, or any other roasted vegetable. They can also be used to make some of the best pasta salads known to man.

For something a little more fun, grill a chicken, shred it, and roll them up in romaine leafs and then dip them in either (or both) dressings.

If there is a secret way you use our dressings, let us know! We're always looking for inventive ways people are thinking up!

And as always, if you're looking for a meal that is "REAL FOOD, REAL FAST, REAL FRESH" don't hesitate to come down to Sherwood Park!
