The only thing that could make it better is if it were artisanally crafted for your plate. The creative minds behind Sfoglini Pasta Shop saw a lack of fresh, organic pasta that supported local grain economies and decided to do something about it. They source ingredients like semolina from North Dakota, and even have a special line of NY State pastas, utilizing local farmers and mills. They utilize seasonal and local ingredients along with traditional Italian methods, like bronze extruded pasta. Doing this actually creates a porous texture that helps the sauce cling to the pasta.
