The Meaning Behind “Real Food, Real Fresh, Real Fast!”

Real Food, Real Fresh, Real Fast is more than just a motto at Pasta Pantry. You’ve probably seen our sign at our restaurant, but have you ever wondered what that actually means? We’ve broken it down into 3 parts (Real Food, Real Fresh, and Real Fast) to show you that this phrase is used for more than just decorative purposes.


Real Food

Are you a fan of bland, processed foods with little to no nutritional value? Neither are we. Our foods are made from the highest quality ingredients possible, like our Chicken Parmigiana and our Tuscan Grilled Chicken, both of which are made using chicken breasts that are fresh, organic, and free of any fillers and preservatives. We also go the extra mile with our Tomato Vegetable Soup and our Minestrone Soup, both of which contain practically every vegetable under the sun!

Although we understand that using these types of ingredients costs a bit more than going with conventional foods, we know how much of a difference it makes when it ends up on the most important place: your plate!

Real Fresh

We use fresh ingredients in everything we make because our approach to preparing and cooking meals revolves around giving you the best possible dish. Our pasta is made fresh daily using the finest durum semolina grown and milled here in Canada, while our sauces are also made fresh using the ingredients that are packed with health benefits. This ensures that you’re getting the best quality foods whether you’re dining at our restaurant or you’re using our foods for cooking at home. For more information on how you can experience Pasta Pantry’s pasta and sauce at home, visit this link!

Real Fast

When you’re pressed for time, finding a meal that is both healthy and tasty can be tough. Whether you’re stopping by for lunch or you need a quick bite before a game, we’re more than able to accompany you, your friends, and your family. We pride ourselves on delivering a meal that can be enjoyed in a matter of minutes regardless of how big or how small your party is.

Pasta Pantry’s Guide for Gluten Free Dining!

When you think of Italian dining, a few foods come to mind: pounds of endless pasta paired with some savoury sauces, a crunchy Caesar salad, and some mouth-watering meatballs.
Most of us are able to enjoy every item on the menu, but there are some people who might not be able to have all of the home-style meals Pasta Pantry offers. Dealing with allergies and food sensitivities, especially involving gluten, can be hard because not every restaurant is equipped to handle those special diets. To make meals that are gluten free requires careful planning and knowledge into what foods contain gluten, even in trace amounts. Luckily, Pasta Pantry offers delectable alternatives to those who are dealing with gluten intolerances or have celiac disease.

Pasta Pantry’s gluten free corn pasta is imported from the motherland, Italy. It’s non-GMO, meaning that the pasta is all natural and free of any genetic modifications. You can also enjoy it with either our meat, tomato vegetable, or four cheese sauces, all of which contain no gluten.

Want to complement your meal with a gluten free salad? Past Pantry‘s homemade Italian salad comes with romaine lettuce, cabbage, carrots and tomatoes and topped with our creamy dressing. Our Caesar salads are a popular choice for our gluten free diners. With fresh romaine lettuce and a healthy amount of Parmesan cheese, you’ll be going for seconds while keeping in line with your food needs (don’t worry, we’ll hold on to those croutons!)

We take careful consideration when preparing out meatballs. You’ll still be able to get all kinds of flavour with Pasta Pantry’s blend of pork, beef, and spices. Our meatballs will be the perfect companions to your gluten free pasta plate and Caesar salad!

Finally, clear your schedules, because Pasta Pantry is the main sponsor of the 3rd annual Gluten Free Cravings, Sherwood Park’s only gluten free food sampling fair and expo! For more information, check out the flyer down below. We hope to see you there on June 7th!
