The Art of Pasta Making

When we think of pasta we often think of Italy. Pasta was brought to the United States with the waves of immigration beginning in the late 1800s. The history of pasta goes back thousands of years. Some believe that the Chinese were the first to make pasta and others believe it dates back to the ancient Romans.

In this workshop, girls will learn the basics of pasta-making by shaping orecchiette noodles to take home and cook. A recipe for the noodles, as well as a simple tomato and butter sauce will be included. Please bring a container to take home your pasta, Ziploc bags will be available for $1.

This program will be held on Saturday, January 14. There will be three hour-long sessions beginning at thetop of every hour (10am, 11pm & 12pm), with a maximum of 25 girl scouts per hour. Please purchase your tickets for the correct date and time.
