Pasta is easier to make than one may think. Join us for an introduction to pasta making techniques! After practicing mixing, rolling, and cutting, students will dive into making their own ravioli - a versatile pasta that can get your creative side going. Students will also see a demonstration on how to make tortellini, plus a simple sauce to pair with the pasta. Students are welcome to cook along with the online demo so they can enjoy a homemade meal after class.
