How to Make a Legit Plate of Pasta - This Sunday on YouTube LIVE!

It’s all about pasta! First we will make a semolina dough pasta, Cavatelli or little caves. This is a perfect intro to pasta making because no rolling pin is even needed! After you get down the knack of forming the cavatelli we’ll move on to how to make a simple plate of pasta, starting with the size of your pot of boiling water! Cacio e Pepe (cheese & pepper) is a perfect example of a simple sauce with three ingredients, when done right is outstanding! Just to drive the idea home on how to make a proper plate of pasta, we'll make a sauce of the moment using whatever local seasonal vegetable is looking good for you
Literally make Sauce of the Moment as your water boils! Many people think that Italian sauces are all tomato based and heavy, but in fact there are many types of ‘sauce of the moment’ that you can make depending on what’s in season.
