On the Menu: Pasta with Meatballs

Maccheroni alla chitarra are part of the rich gastronomic tradition of the Italian region Abruzzo. The specific squared shape is obtained thanks to an actual Pasta Guitar! With the meatballs on top and a rich tomato sauce, Maccheroni alla chitarra are so savory. It's not uncommon that every Sunday morning the family will gather to make the “pallotte”, meatballs, for the sauce.

Class Description and Details

In this 1.5-hour experience, you’ll join us in Abruzzo — the region famous for this pasta — and you'll be invited into Nonna Rita's home. We’ll share family traditions, stories, and create a delicious meal together using a recipe passed down through generations.  See below for our favorite wine pairing suggestion, should you be so inclined!  Every class provides a meal to a child in need. One Class, One Meal.
