Why should I use fresh pasta over dry pasta?

For 3 reasons:

  1. It conveniently cooks in only 2-3 minutes vs 12-15 minutes for dry. This saves valuable time as well as electricity or gas.
  2. It is healthier, if not over-cooked, but kept al dente.
  3. It simply tastes better. Have you tried dry, de-hydrated Tortellini, canned Spaghetti & sauce or those long shelf life Gnocchi recently?
