From Scratch Fettuccine 2 Ways – Tomato Sauce with Italian Sausage and Pesto Sauce

Tuesday, June 18

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and get saucy with us in this hands-on pasta cooking class, where we’ll be whipping up a taste of Italy with a dash of creativity!  Join us for a culinary adventure through the rolling hills of Italy, where we’ll master the art of making fettuccine noodles from scratch and learn two sauces to serve them with.  Oven-roasted tomato sauce with Italian sausage, and a sunflower seed pesto. And because no Italian meal is complete without dessert, we’ll finish with a show-stopping summer berry tiramisu!  And as we say goodbye to our pasta-making pals, remember that the true secret to Italian cooking is not just about the recipe, but about the joy and passion that goes into every dish. So go ahead, get creative with your pasta, and buon appetito!
