Dinner Just Got a Whole Lot Easier

We know the feeling. You come home after work and you’re exhausted. You don’t even want to think about making dinner because you need to catch your breath. Preparing all that food, cooking it at the right temperature, and getting it ready for the family takes a lot of energy. Not only that, but you have to deal with those picky eaters. Who’s got time to do all that work?

But what if there was an easier way? What if someone else did all the work for you? Could you imagine if the only thing you had to do is place a delicious tray in the oven? Thanks to Pasta Pantry’s Prepared Trays, this is now a reality.

Our trays are made fresh using the best pasta in our restaurant. Using a variety of different pasta cuts, we’ll make sure your homemade tray is nutritious and full of amazing Italian flavours!

How does it work? It’s simple! Just give us a call ahead of time so we can get it ready for you. Once you pick up your tray from Pasta Pantry and bring it home, preheat the oven for 350°. The cook time will depend on the size of the tray; a 6-10 serving tray will sit in the oven for 1 hour, while our 15-20 serving tray will take anywhere between 1 1/2 to 2 hours.


Remove the foil lid and give the inside of the lid a good spray (PAM or a similar product works best) and replace it. Once that’s complete, place the tray on a shallow pan or cookie sheet and bake the tray with the cover on and let it cook. Make sure you keep an eye on that tray—check the small tray after 45 minutes and the large tray after an hour and 15 minutes).


After the cheese gets nice and melted, take off the lid and let it brown for about 5 minutes. Replace the cover and remove the tray from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. After that, get the family together and dine on some of the best pasta Sherwood Park has to offer! There’s also the option of us cooking the tray for you, so all you have to do is swing by before dinner and pick it up.
