    Fresh-made pasta is undoubtedly delicious, but surely it's far too much work for the average home cook... It's actually quite simple to learn! And once you do, you'll be able to enjoy homemade pasta in your own home, any time. This class will teach you how to make delicious pasta from scratch by letting you experiment with an easy egg pasta recipe and learning to knead the dough to perfection. You'll work with a pasta machine to cut beautiful tagliatelle and also create a scrumptious three-cheese ravioli. To top off your pasta creations, you'll learn to prepare two classic sauces: a basil-scented tomato sauce and slowly simmered two-meat ragu. And who could forget about dessert? You'll also use your dough to create a crunchy almond biscotti. Best of all, when the cooking is done, you'll be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor with a full sit-down meal!

    Fresh Pasta Workshop

    (8)
    It's no wonder why Italians are world-famous for their pasta: whether it's light, ethereal egg noodles from northern Italy, rich, cheesy gnocchi from Tuscany, or rustic semolina creations from southern Italy -- fresh pasta made the traditional Italian way rarely ever disappoints. In this class, you'll learn to make three very different pastas from three different Italian regions, and pair each with their ideal sauce: From Liguria -- a silky tagliatelle in a light, wine-accented fish ragu. From Tuscany -- a light Ricotta gnocchi tossed with colorful roasted pepper and olive sauce. And from Basilicata, a handmade cavatelli with a chili-laced three cheese and sausage ragu sauce. Does all that savory have you craving something sweet? Round out your meal with a refreshing salad and some homemade biscotti. Bellissima!
