WELCOME TO MANGIA BENE PASTA
Your place for traditional Italian recipes
 
Abruzzo is a mountainous region of Italy with a coastline on the
Adriatic Sea.  Should a dish be labeled all’abruzzese, it will for sure
be marked by the spiciness of peperoncino.  Abruzesse cooks also
flavor their dishes with aromatic saffron and fruity olive oil.  From this
region, originates an interesting pasta that is made on a guitar-
shaped tool called a chitarra.
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.
