Ideas for a lighter life

We’re not only dedicated in providing our members the best tools to work with, but we also strive to offer the best deals and experiences on a budget. With that in mind, what better way to enjoy this holiday season than throwing the most memorable pasta night of the winter?

Pasta is what brings the world together. In fact, the art of making pasta is so incredible that Aziz Ansari’s character, Dev, in the Netflix show Master of Noneuprooted his whole life to live in Modena, Italy to study pasta creation under local master chefs. No need to worry though, because you definitely won’t need a plane ticket to Italy to knock this pasta recipe into the sky.
