The next time you get an invitation for a pasta party from the chef at the Orti in Lucca, grab your apron and get on over to his restaurant! There is nothing difficult about mixing all the wonderful ingredients, you just have to follow Samuele, add a little patience, stir and taste the amazing fresh pasta that you did on your own.

I can only say that if my husband can make a great tagliatelle, so can you!

And what do you do when you’re done with the pasta? Make a great sauce to spread over the thin noodles, add fresh Parmesan and eat. Don’t forget the wine to enhance your efforts of having worked so hard in the kitchen!
