In this four-week FLEX class students will learn to make two fresh sauces, and two forms of fresh pasta from scratch. There are no live meetings for this class to allow students maximum flexibility to participate each week. Opportunities to interact with the teacher and other students include posting and responding in the Outschool classroom, sharing a written or video recorded reflection on what worked and what you would do differently, answering questions posed in the videos, and/or...
Students will finish this class with confidence from the experience of creating four classic Italian-American recipes by hand that can be mixed and matched at home.
I am offering this class as a healthy introductory class for older students to begin cooking classic meals from scratch. I have been cooking, baking and feeding people my whole life. After having a heart transplant several years ago, I have committed to studying nutrition. My cooking focuses on foods that are whole, natural, and heart healthy for my family.
Homework OfferedYour homework is to let your pasta rest, and to eat your amazing Italian creations!

2 files available upon enrollmentIngredients: A list with specific amounts of ingredients for the first class will be provided to all learners upon enrollment. Equipment: Students will need a pasta machine. I use a hand crank Norpro model that was about $30 on sale. A quick online search shows many options from $25-$80. Target currently has one listed for $25, Amazon has many choices as well. It is a small investment, but once you taste homemade pasta you will agree that the cost is worth it. (Especially when your child is doing the work!). *I can send an extra video by request for students to use a rolling pin and knife if a pasta machine is not available, but fair warning the pasta is not as nice.
This is a cooking course that involves the use of knives, an oven, and a stovetop. Because of the dangers involved parents must be present while their students are preparing food in case of accidents. Please see the ingredient list for each class for any allergies.
