WELCOME TO MANGIA BENE PASTA
Your place for traditional Italian recipes
 
St. Joseph, who is the patron saint of the family, is celebrated at the
Spring equinox and his day is a feast of bread.  St. Joseph's feast
day is celebrated with families gathering together to create
enormous buffets. The table is said to overflow with an abundance of
food that the Father of the Holy Family provides.  A highlight of the
meal is the special sweets that are prepared.
Some useful food words or terms that you may find in
Italian recipes, while dining at an Italian restaurant, or traveling in Italy.
RECOMMENDED PRODUCT
Fresh pasta is rich in flavor, lighter in density,
and gives you flexibility in making different
shapes and cuts.  Whether you're rolling out
sheets of lasagna or slicing strands of
fettuccine, this classic, hand cranked pasta
machine is up to the task.  We have owned
this brand of pasta machine for over 20 years
and can highly recommend its quality and
durability.  If you want to make fresh pasta,
pay a little more for a good pasta machine
and it will last you a lifetime.
 
Vegetarian Bolognese Sauce
This delicious sauce is a vegetarian twist
on a classic Bolognese meat sauce.
