Using rich ingredients, such as Challenge Dairy Farms unsalted butter and Manufacturer's cream (with only a 40% butterfat content), is only part of the secret to the texture and flavor you'll find in Assenti's Pasta Homemade Cream Sauces.
Do not microwave Cream Sauces it is best to use a double boiler (Bagna-Marie) to heat Cream Sauces. If you are very careful you can heat sauces in the container in which they are packed. Simply use a small sauce pot with about 1 inch of water. Turn the flame to slow/medium to warm sauce. Do not let water come to a violent boil. Carefully remove container from pot and pour over pasta. Toss well to coat evenly.
Please find that we have given a few suggestions of use for our various cream sauces that will be great on any pasta!
