Italian Pasta Passion
Join us for a pasta extravaganza, where Nico will share with you some Italian pasta classics and his mother’s special homestyle Italian family baked pasta recipe. From learning to prepare a classic Italian Meat Ragù, to putting together the ultimate family celebration dish, Nonna Stella’s Pasta al Forno, this class is perfect for those of you that would like to add some authentic Italian pasta dishes to your cooking repertoire.
Nonna Stella’s Italian Meat Ragù – this is the sauce that evokes the aroma’s of my Southern Italian upbringing and our Sunday family table – my mother’s pasta sauce rendered from the slow braising of meat in tomato sauce.
Nonna Stella’s Pasta al Forno – a sensationally rich & tasty baked pasta dish with layers of penne, ragù, parmigiano & mozzarella cheeses, crumbled boiled egg and ham.
Orecchiete Con Broccoli – fast & simple, this regional Italian (Puglia) specialty is full of flavour and made from a hard durum wheat pasta in a light sauce of sauteed garlic, chilli, and broccoli florets.
Tortellini alla Panna con proscuitto – a classic Italian cream sauce with parmigiano and proscuitto
Stefano’s Sfoglia di Mele – a wonderfully easy & impressive apple tart (streudel) recipe from our Tuscan chef friends, Stefano & Sergio
