The Extra Ingredient
Pasta Perfection

Whether one of many courses, or the primary meal event, a great pasta dish satisfies all those invited to the table. With hundreds of shapes and sauces, the gratifying possibilities are endless.


IN THIS ISSUE, we're cooking up some fabulous pasta dishes under the guidance of everyone's favorite Italian-American cook, Lidia Bastianich. We'll school you on cooking pasta perfectly, and tossing it with delicious sauces. We have a hearty Rigatoni Woodsman Style, Orecchiette with Artichokes and Bacon, and Bucatini with Pancetta, Tomato, and Onion. Buon appetito!

Bring a Bag!
Bring a Bag, Feed a Family

We'd like to take this time to THANK YOU for making our Bring a Bag, Feed a Family campaign such a huge success! Since beginning the effort in late 2009, you have helped us raise over $1959.30 for the Greensboro Urban Ministry's Food Bank!

Every time a customer makes a purchase and brings their own shopping bag, a dime is put in the "Feed a Family" cookie jar. The contents of the jar are then donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry Food Bank. This allows us to help the environment by using fewer disposable bags, and also help Greensboro's families in need!
