    Celebrating World Pasta Month with Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta

    Celebrating World Pasta Month with Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta

    Pasta has played a major role in Filipinos’ lives, from being part of our daily meals to a popular choice for various events and gatherings. October marks a special month for Filipino Pasta lovers as we join the world in celebrating the World Pasta Month worldwide. 

    I personally loved pasta and was really excited for this event that I was invited into. I got to taste 8 different pasta dishes. This year, the National Pasta Month celebration highlights an exciting challenge among Mercato Centrale food vendors as they participate in the Doña Elena Al Dente Ultimate Pasta Challenge where they featured their originally crafted meal combinations of their specialty dishes and Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta. The event was held last last October 14, at the Mercato Centrale, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

    After the registration, participants were given a Pasta Passport where you can get the guides and how to enjoy free Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta products and appreciate the entertainment band and program hosted by the radio and TV host, Jamie Fournier. The passport costs P100.

    Passport holders of the event were also able to taste and vote for the best pasta dish from the eight pasta-licious dish entries of the Ultimate Pasta Challenge participants and five beautifully designed pasta artwork from the Pasta Art competition.

    I enjoyed roaming around even for a fact that it was so hot under the tent. I was able to taste all the pasta dishes and voted for the one that I liked the most. I loved the uniqueness of the Salted Egg Pasta which its saltiness and sweetness combined, so they got my vote. I also loved the creaminess and full of flavors of the Salmon and Spinach Pasta which won the People's Choice Award.

    Made with 100% durum wheat semolina, Doña Elena Al Dente Pasta is crafted with bronze dies which leave rough ridges on the pasta, helping sauces cling better thus making it more flavorful. It is available in five variants – Fusilli, Spaghetti, Fettuccine, Penne Rigate, and Lasagna.
