Begin class by preparing a fresh Caesar salad and crispy fried eggplant as your starters. For the main dish, make authentic al dente pasta and pair it with hearty ricotta-stuffed meatballs. For dessert, whip up mouthwatering Italian donuts using a surprisingly easy-to-make dough, creamy non-dairy ice cream and a rich chocolate drizzle.
