Our flight didn’t leave until pretty late. So, Logan (actually some time in advance) made plans for us to take a pasta making class! (What a stand up guy!). In the morning, we walked to the Piazza Navona.
Then we walked over to another piazza to meet up with the pasta making people. We got there kind of early and had to wait for some time. This plaza has much more going on with vendors shouting and birds flying around and customers browsing.
Eventually, all the people arrived and we were led to the place where our pasta making would happen.
The two woman teaching our group were wonderful instructors and full of energy! We were making fettucini and ravioli. The kitchen area was on a roof so it was a little chilly.
Fettuccine with amatriciana sauce.
Ravioli with a ricotta and spinach filling and a butter sage sauce.
I leaned that most traditional Italian sauces only have three or four ingredients, and that there are over 600 types of pasta. After the pasta, they gave us tiny glasses of limoncello. It too all my willpower to not make a weird face while trying a sip because it did not taste good. Bleh. But the pasta was amazing and they gave us each a copy of the recipes to try at home. So obviously, I’m gonna make it at home.
Logan and I visited a few more sites after making pasta.
The Pantheon. Very impressive.
The coffers in the ceiling create an illusion effect to make the dome look higher than it is.
The Trevi Fountain. Very crowded.
Then we flew home.
