100 gr ( 3 oz) toasted pine nuts
Grated Parmigiano Reggiano ( 40 gr, 1 + ½ oz is enough, but...same as extra virgin olive oil...)

  1. It was an amazing class! My mom and i enjoyed every minute of this class not only to learn how to cook italian food but also to understand what good food is.. we made the best pasta i have ever tasted, simple lemon, parsley, and pine nut sauce... but i had the cravings for it EVERYDAY afterwards!!! 10 days later i finally got home and made it to satisfy my cravings.. and my boyfriend thought it was the best pasta he's ever had too..!
    once we finished our dinner, Marcella kindly packed the left over for my dad who did not participate in the class... the artichoke and the chicken dish was even better the next day!
    My mom and I highly recommend Marcella's class as it is such a welcoming environment that satisfies the curious minds of cooks of all levels..
