corzetti-domeThere is something about pasta that is innately satisfying, enriching, and comforting.  We’re going to let you in on a little secret today—making homemade pasta is shockingly easy to make. It takes a little bit of time (get ready to love your rolling pin if you don’t have a pasta maker), but the result is completely worth the wait. We have brought in Clara Ravanelli from Milan to show us how to make some creative pasta, in shapes that you might not have imagined you could do.

One of our favorite regional dishes is the famed trofie al pesto: pesto pasta. Trofie is a short, thin, twisted pasta from Liguria, Northern Italy. We’ll then try our hand at orecchiette, from the Italian words “orecchio” (ear) and “etto” (small).  It is an ear-shaped pasta originating in the beautiful southern region of Italy.  At lastly, you will love to make hand crafted pasta shapes and corzetti are such fun to make.  These pasta discs that are stamped with a design, which helps to hold a sauce.  They are a regional pasta to Liguria in Italy. This will be an evening of creative pasta dishes for you to try on your next Italian night.
