Pesto and Tomato Angel Hair Pasta

Pesto and Tomato Angel Hair Pasta

Pasta is one of the most versatile “food groups” as far as I’m concerned.  You can add so many things to pasta and come up with a casual or an elegant meal.  Today there are so many pasta options in our supermarkets –  you can purchase whole wheat pasta, gluten free pasta made from rice (check out Lundberg.com) and semolina pasta in every possible shape and size.   If you’ve never tasted fresh pasta, get ready for a surprise to your senses.  In this class you will be cranking out fresh pasta by hand and see how the nonni’s of old created simple, but yet delicious dishes from the basics in their kitchen – flour and eggs ( flour paste – hence pasta).

We will try a number of sauces too.  Pesto, browned butter and sage, a milk based sauce, sun-dried tomato – all with a different twist of course.
So far on the menu are:
Once we complete the cooking we will sit down and enjoy our meal with a glass of Chianti!
