Dan Pashman wanted to create his own pasta shape. After years of dreaming that he’d be the guy to add a new kind of pasta to your grocery store’s selection, and then reporting on the quest through his podcast "The Sporkful," he was ready to launch cascatelli (from the Italian word for waterfall, which the pasta shape resembles) into the world last year.
Then he ran into the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Like many people, I’m accustomed to clicking a couple of buttons on my phone or computer and a package shows up on my doorstep in a few days," said Pashman, who had no previous food development experience. "I never thought about how many months of preparation and planning and movement of materials had to take place for that to happen."
