Italian Sauces and Condiments with Francesca Giarraffa

Having several versatile sauce and condiment ideas in your cooking repertoire can enhance your pasta dishes, as sides or entrees.  Let our "seasoned," culinary instructor, Francesca, come to the rescue with several favorites! You'll learn to make "Bolognese" sauce (made with ground pork and sirloin, diced vegetables and herbs, cooked in a red wine and tomato sauce and served with tagliatelle pasta), "pasta alla norma" (Sicilian style tomato sauce cooked with onions, garlic and basil, served with penne pasta and topped with fried eggplant and ricotta cheese), "strascinati" (Umbrian style eggless pasta topped with homemade sausage ragu made with chicken stock and tomato puree).  The pasta dishes will be served with a seasonal salad. This class is held in the Cooking and Lifestyles Classroom at Whole Foods Market, 3135 Washtenaw Ave., in Ann Arbor. Students may register on-line through
