Onboard Holland America Line

Homemade Pasta

You’ll never look at dried pasta the same way again. After learning to make fresh pasta in a food processor, you saw how a pasta roller shapes wide, even sheets of pasta. Then we taught you the secrets to making tender ravioli and tortellini with our wild mushroom filling and a simple but impressive Brown Butter and Pine Nut Sauce.

This earthy pasta filling pairs wonderfully with a delicate pine nut sauce.
