Cooking Class: Salad and Pasta Pairings

Pasta and salad that marry savory flavors and hearty textures are a classic dining selection. Chef Aaron shares his winning combinations in this hands-on cooking experience. 

Start your lesson with a seasonal salad dressed with a white balsamic vinaigrette before crafting a variety of handmade pasta, each served with its own distinctive sauce, such as tagliatelle enrobed in fresh cream, Parmesan and chives, and capellini topped with a lighter blend of San Marzano tomatoes and fresh basil. Close out the class with an olive oil gelato that will transport you to the heart of Italy without ever leaving your kitchen!
