This past Saturday and Sunday was a Cooking Class Weekend here at the Hartstone Inn and the topic was Pasta, Pasta, Pasta! Techniques included making the dough, coloring and flavoring different pastas, rolling and cutting various shapes, filling pastas such as raviolis and tortellini and finally, cooking pasta. Specific dishes included: Spinach Fettuccine Puttanesca with Shrimp, Farfalle with fresh Tomato, Basil and Roasted Garlic, Green Pea Ravioli with Lemon and Olive Oil and Potato Gnocchi with Lobster and Asparagus. There was just as much pasta eating as there was pasta making!
