A simple dress- ing prepared with Benissimo Toasted Sesame Oil, soy sauce and honey adds in- credible flavor to so many warm weather foods like cucumber, avocado, edamame and spinach.

Another line extension, Italian Inspired Organic Pasta, offers beautiful shapes from the small regions of Italy. The tri- color pasta is very appealing to consumers because of the shapes and packaging. The Pasta Shoppe is a boutique pasta manufacturer of fun shapes, healthy grains and organic pasta.

The Pasta Shoppe's boutique pasta man- ufacturing process has been built to reflect the small manufacturing plants all over Italy, using only premium ingredients and "Old World" processes. All of The Pasta Shoppe's specialty pasta is made using bronze dies, which give a rough, matte texture that is porous and holds sauce beautifully.

Combining fun shapes, innovation and high quality manufacturing, The Pasta Shoppe offers customers a wide variety of differentiated pasta lines to consider. With every dining experience, the final cooked pasta has wonderful consistency and fla- vor and adds a lot of fun!
