Mmm, Pasta.

I love pasta. If we aren't eating something traditional Mexican for a meal, I am always making up some sort of pasta dish.
The first time I tried RP's pasta was post partum, a friend brought me the porcini mushroom tortellini's with alfredo sauce. It was so delicious, and not because I was just starving and sleep deprived. I have picked up a package of this pasta pretty much every week.

I got a package last week at the grocery store, and about 2 days later I noticed it went bad. So I emailed the company, and told them the expiration date said the product was still good. They were extremely friendly, and told me I should go back to the store to get a refund. I didn't have my receipt any longer, so I was told they would take care of it..

Well.. they sure took care of things. I was very surprised when the UPS man brought this huge box to my door! The pasta was in a cold container, and there was 6 packages of pasta as a 'replacement'! Wow, talk about some great business standards!

I dont think you find companies with these kind of ethics anymore. It says on their package: 'traditonal pasta made in small batches by master pasta maker Peter Robertson in Madison, WI. Fresh, authentic, never pre-cooked.' (It tastes as close as I can get to have a little Italian lady making pasta in my kitchen :)

I tried the fettuccine for the first time tonight for dinner. I lightly sauteed red bell pepper (chopped) in olive oil, added in frozen shrimp, then added chopped fresh basil and half a lemon's worth of juice right at the end. Tossed this all with the pasta, and it was delicious. (toddler ate it all up)

If anybody is local, I encourage you to try out this pasta, or check your local dairy selection for some locally made fresh pasta. (note: I am not getting endorsed or anything by the company, I just love pasta, and was blown away to receive the pasta 'replacements' in the mail today!)

Wow, that is one nice company! Most don't really have customer service like that.

That meal you mentioned sounds delicious. I have a soft spot for pasta. :)
