For the launch, the “You Make Me™” line will feature four different flavors packaged with eye-catching graphics, each including a unique pasta variety:

According to a press release, the “You Make Me” line is the evolution of the Minzano® pasta kit that SUNSET® tested earlier this year in select supermarkets, said Mastronardi, who explained, “We launched the Minzano® kit in March and it exceeded our expectations.
