For this class, Maria is teaming up with Paula Stanghetta from MP TOURS. Maria and Paula have hosted groups in Sicily where they have introduced travelers to unique local experiences across the island. Since they can’t be in Sicily with foodies, they are happy to be online doing what they love to do – highlight local food specialties and traditions.
Tonight we will learn how to make pasta without the use of a machine. Using only our fingers you will create a small handmade artisan-style noodle called "cavatelli". You'll work along with us as you learn to mix semolina flour then knead until you create a smooth dough. Learn how to roll and shape the dough using a few techniques to create the small noodle. We'll introduce you to broccoli rabe/rapini an important vegetable in Italian cooking. Then you'll create a simple old-world Sicilian recipe using 5 ingredients to create a delicious one-pan meal with your homemade pasta. Plus we'll share ideas with you for other ways you can create fun dishes with cavatelli. Order the complete food kit (OPTION 2) and receive all the ingredients to make your meal (serves 4 to 6). The pasta freezes well, so you can also make a 1/2 recipe and store the remainder for a meal another day.
