In a literal sense, Cavatelli translates to “little hollows.” But, it means way more to us at Red Pump. This simple, rustic casalinga-style pasta from Southern Italy is one of the most fun kinds of pasta to make. And, the best part is that you don’t need any fancy equipment so you can make these again (and again) at home.

We’ll begin the class with a cocktail demo led by General Manager James Bonner. You’ll learn the secret to making Sgroppino - one of our favorite Italian inspired cocktails. Made with lemon sorbet, Processco, and Vodka, this is the perfect cocktail to keep you cool all summer long!

Following the cocktail demo, Chef Brandon Ripenberger will teach you how to dress Cavatelli up or down as we make two different sauces: a rich lamb sauce and a simple basil pesto. We’ll then sit down together to enjoy the fruits (er, carbs) of our labor. Class includes a meal, a cocktail demo, a cocktail and a glass of wine.
