The art of cooking has been a lifelong love of Colleen’s. She became a trained table side chef at the storied Prince Pasta Company in Lowell, Mass. One of America’s most beloved pasta brands was born in 1912 when three immigrants from the same village in Sicily, Italy, started a small spaghetti manufacturing company in Boston’s North End. The address of their storefront: 92 Prince Street. It was a perfect partnership. Gaetano LaMarca was the administrator, Giuseppe Seminara was the salesman and Michele Cantella was the pasta maker. These entrepreneurs had no way of knowing that their little company would become one of the largest pasta manufacturers in the country. Eventually Prince® outgrew its offices and moved to Lowell, Mass. In 1941, Giuseppe Pellegrino, another Sicilian immigrant, joined the company and soon bought a controlling interest. Prince® remained in the hands of the Pellegrino family until 1987. Today, Colleen brings experience and recipes handed down through generations of her family to share with you.
