Ya know, The Hungry Mouse is almost 2 years old (!!!), and I still haven’t gotten around doing an article on making fresh pasta.
Now I have no excuse.
The good folks at Bertolli just sent me a complimentary, shiny new Imperia hand-crank pasta machine and a beautiful Emile Henry lasagna dish. It’s a really nice package worth $125. (Thanks, guys!)
And they want you to have one, too. Read on for details on how to enter to win the Bertolli Pasta Party Giveaway!
The Prize Package
An Imperia Pasta Machine
I’ve owned one of these pasta makers in the past, and can absolutely vouch for its awesomeness. It’s sturdy, old-fashioned, and totally easy to use. If your grandmother likes to cook, chances are she has one of these tucked away in a kitchen cabinet.
An Emile Henry Lasagna Baker
I haven’t used this particular dish yet, but I have other Emile Henry pieces and just love them. They’re thick and hold heat really well. (Plus, they’re pretty enough to go from oven to table.)
Bertolli is actually doing a pretty cool series of webisodes with chef Rocco DiSpirito and the fabulous Marisa Tomei.
Check it out. In this episode, they track down Italy’s “Egg Man” and learn to cook a traditional rustic dinner.
