Paco's class was so much fun!! I learned a lot and I'm very excited to make pasta on my own. Paco, if you see this, thank you!!! The big pasta (like rigatoni but 10x bigger) I was trying to think of the other night is called Manicotti :)

Chef Paco is an amazing host and incredible chef. We thoroughly enjoyed learning how to make handmade pasta in his beautiful home where we were able to interact as a team!
