Life in the big city, and everything in between.

A long standing Italian tradition

Between Mott and Mulberry street is a little Italian gem where they have been making fresh pasta for New Yorkers since 1920. This magnificent specialty store is Piemonte Ravioli. Homemade and dried pastas fill the racks from end to end. Pastas stuffed with everything from spinach and cheese to seafood, meats, and vegetables. They even have all the classic shape variations including ravioli, tortellini, cannelloni, and more. For fresh gourmet pasta these prices are very inexpensive.

The ravioli stuffed with spinach and cheese was going to be on the menu for a savory and satisfying dinner on a chilly Manhattan night. I guess it doesn’t hurt to know Sara Jenkins because she hooked it up with her unbelievably perfect tomato sauce. I could write about the sauce alone and go on for days. It was hard for me to decide which was better, the homemade tomato sauce or the ravioli.

Thanks Sara, as usual, everything you touch turns to gold, including your tomato sauce! Delicious!

If you wanna make ravioli at home, do yourself a favor and replace the Chef Boyarde with Piemonte Ravioli.
