Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Add 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh herbs, such as basil or rosemary, to the cooked vegetables with the broth.
How to Store Dried Pasta
Dried pasta will last almost indefinitely if stored in an airtight glass or plastic container in a cool dark place. Dried whole wheat pasta can turn rancid, however, so should be used within the recommended time listed on the package.
