Pretto’s Pasta
From Nonna's Kitchen to Yours!
Simple recipes made with local high quality ingredients.

After emigrating from Italy, in 1966 Rose and Fred Pretto began crafting the Pretto’s line of frozen pasta. Using traditional recipes, specialized equipment and quality ingredients, Pretto’s was the first to introduce real Italian food to Canadian consumers.

Today Winona’s Harvest continues this tradition—making high-quality Pretto’s Pasta entrees including classic Italian style lasagna with thin layers of pasta made with eggs and flour. We use locally sourced “real” ingredients—flour, eggs, whole milk, butter, cream, vegetables, crushed tomatoes, herbs and spices. And we do not add colouring or preservatives.


Pretto’s Pasta increases revenue by 94% over one of the toughest years for start-ups!
