Fresh Pasta & Ricotta - March 10, 2011

posted Mar 30, 2011, 9:06 AM by

UKSF's pasta guru, John Tormey, returned for this pasta and ricotta workshop. Participants learned to make two types of pasta: fettuccine and gnudi. The first type of pasta was demo'd using a pasta rolling machine, while the second type, gnudi, was  hands-on.  Gnudi is a type of gnocchi made from ricotta cheese and a little bit of flour... it's a pasta everyone can make, no equipment necessary.  The class also learned how to make ricotta from scratch, making this pasta truly homemade, start to finish. Participants went home with a starter kit including recipes, samples of their creations, and dough to freeze for future gnocchi-making.
