For chef Missy Robbins, making pasta by hand is her "happy place."

We’re celebrating the craft of pasta making this week on Seasoned. We talk with chef Missy Robbins about her new book, Pasta: The Spirit and Craft of Italy’s Greatest Food with Recipes. And, we visit the New England Pasta Company in Avon, an inclusive workplace where the motto is “everyone belongs.” Plus, we talk with the chef behind Peters Pasta; he's famous on TikTok for making fresh pasta dough by hand in unexpected places. His videos are mesmerizing.

Fresh Egg Pasta Dough + Extruded Pasta Dough
Spaghetti alla Puttanesca
Spinach and Ricotta Filled Tortelli with Brown Butter and Ricotta Salata
