Everyday Food

Pasta Primer

Season 5, Episode 7 of 13

Today, EVERYDAY FOOD matches pastas with specific sauces and techniques to create fabulous dishes for friends and family. Allie starts with an all-time favorite, tomato-sausage lasagna, layering tender lasagna noodles, sweet Italian sausages and tomato sauce, mozzarella and parmesan. Today's "Have You Tried?" ingredient is dried mushrooms. Margot uses their concentrated, earthy flavor to enhance creamy orzo with porcini, a quick and easy version of Italian risotto. Sarah twirls thin spaghetti with crisp yellow peppers and plump pieces of shrimp in "Cooking for One": sesame shrimp and noodles. Emma prepares rigatoni with tomatoes and mozzarella that's light and fresh. Lucinda tosses fettuccine with prosciutto and peas in a luscious cream sauce.
