Flavored Noodle Varieties

Lemon Verbena Pasta- A unique twist on lemon pepper pasta that you commonly find at many Italian markets, this pasta is made with chopped parsley and lemon verbena. It is an excellent side dish or a base to a seafood entree with a Thai flair.

Tarragon Parsley- A subtle flavor best served with a light tomato sauce or a salsa fresca made with cherry tomatoes. It’s also delicious on its own with just a little olive oil as a side dish to a roasted meat.

Hand Made Ravioli  ($7/box of 18 vegetarian ravioli, $9/box of 18 meat filled ravioli) serves 2 people

Basil Pesto Ravioli- A classic Italian flavor without nuts. They can be served with a tomato sauce or just a little bit of olive oil.  Very flavorful.

Eggplant Ravioli- Made with locally grown eggplant, ricotta and a touch of sage.  Can be served with a tomato sauce or just a little bit of olive oil. Very bold taste.

Home Cooked Sauces (prices vary)

Bolognese Meat Sauce- A classic Italian sauce made with our ground beef, Italian sausage, allspice, bay leaf and burgundy wine.  It goes very well with all of our plain flavors, but is best with Spelt & Oat. ($7/ 16 oz. tub)

Neapolitan Marinara- A classic from Napoli made with toasted garlic and oregano, this can top your pizza, your pasta, or serve as base for vegetarian lasagna. ($6/ 16 oz. tub)

Green Garlic Pesto- It’s green because it is made with green garlic chives. Our most popular pesto, aka GREEN CRACK, is great on sandwiches, on pasta, on meats, on burgers. ($7/8oz. tub)

Basil Pesto- Classic Italian recipe made with pecans instead of pine nuts.  It can be used as a spread on sandwiches, for a fresh tomato and mozzarella salad or on your favorite pasta. ($7/ 8oz. tub)
