PASTA MAKING CLASS

Beginner Level

In this video-based class, you will learn how easy it is to make fresh Italian-style pasta at home, with and without eggs, in many different shapes and flavors. No matter what part of the world you’re from, you will come away from this class knowing how to whip up delicious fresh pasta dishes that would make someone’s Italian mother somewhere, very proud.

A note on the 12 video lessons: They have been ordered in such a way so that if you follow along with me from lesson to lesson, you'll end up with three nights of main course dishes that optimize the freshness of the dough and sauces. (Lessons 3-7 = fettuccine with a creamy pesto sauce, 8-10 = hand shaped pasta with a tasty classic tomato sauce, and 11+12 = spinach ravioli with melted butter.)

This class is not currently accepting new enrollments. The Classes feature will be retiring soon, but class content will remain accessible.
