Fresh Matcha Pasta

August 17, 2017


This week in class we were tasked with utilizing a unique ingredient to create something wonderful. Instead of using matcha powder for the typical tea we decided to use it to create some delicious homemade pasta. To top it all off we served it with a sauté of summer vegetables and a squeeze of lemon.
