Master Your Italian Pasta Making Skills

"There's something so satisfying about fresh, homemade pasta that makes it worth the extra effort. Not only is it lower in calories and carbs, it's also surprisingly easy and fun to make.

These online classes through airbnb will transport you to the motherland for authentic pasta-making experiences where you'll get to explore the kitchens of five families, discover different sauces and flavors, and perfect your technique for creating traditional shapes.
