NB: Pasta Cooking time: If you are using fresh pasta from Dianoas then cooking time is 1 - 1.5 mins.
LIfeshelf: Our pasta will last for a week. However, the longer you keep it the longer the cooking time.
Jerk Sauce: You are welcome to make or buy your own jerk sauce or seasoning. In the video, extra jerk sauce was used at the end for that extra color.
This Rasta Pasta dish can be done vegetarian and pescetarian. It’s perfect with shrimp.
Rasta Pasta is originally done with Penne pasta but you can use whatever pasta you like. It would pair well with rigatoni.
