Al Dente is a pasta company famous for its tasty healthy pasta. The company started small and with a lot of hard work from Monique who later on married an equally passionate man called Dennis. Monique learned the art of making pasta from a professional and had never forgotten a technique that yields tender but very firm pasta. Monique saw how popular pasta is and decided to do something about it. People wanted pasta that has a unique, fresh touch to it. By meeting the global need, the company is now at the top of its game. Their pasta is fresh, delicious, and comes in various flavors. You will enjoy every bite.
Back in 1981, the amazing Marcella Hazan shared with me her secrets to making perfect pasta. Since then, al dente pasta has become famous for incredible taste and texture that duplicates what an Italian grandmother would make in her own kitchen. And, it cooks in just 3 minutes! Enjoy.

While many conventional pasta makers extrude their pasta in order to speed production, Al Dente uses the time-honored tradition of rolling out its pasta dough. This process called “sheeting,” duplicates rolling pasta dough with a rolling pin which Monique’s mentor, famed Italian cook Marcella Hazan, believed was essential to creating the best pasta. Sheeting is a slow and precise process that allows Al Dente to achieve the sublime, velvety texture that has made it a favorite on dinner tables across North America.
