Kristina is a master in the kitchen and I was lucky enough to get a hands-on lesson on how to shape delicious homemade pasta from her! Kristina is the owner and executive chef of Viola’s Pantry, a company she named after her Grandmother. Viola’s Pantry offers fresh pasta, fresh sauces, and more and everything is homemade. She prides Viola’s Pantry on having fresh ingredients that the whole family can enjoy!
In the segment, we shaped some pasta into hand-rolled authentic Italian shapes that you can do at home without any equipment! I followed Kristina’s lead as she taught me the technique on how to shape the pasta and it was super easy and so fun to do.
She then explained that the pasta only needs to boil for a few minutes before it is ready to go (watch for when it floats to the surface). We then topped it off with some of her homemade sauce and basil to complete the delicious dish!
If you want to find the exact recipe that we used in the segment, Kristina made a full post and demonstration on her Instagram page which can be found by searching @Violas_Pantry on Instagram. You can also reach out to her there or on her Facebook page to order some delicious Italian food! https://www.facebook.com/violaspantry/
