ISO: Fresh Lasagna Sheets

The thinner, the better! Do they have it at the Berkeley Bowl or at Genova Delicatessen? Or at Rainbow Grocery?

    I don't know if they have them at the above places, but I know that when I wanted to make lasagna with fresh pasta, I bought sheets of uncut pasta at The Pasta Shop and cut it myself. I did this at the Oakland store, but I'm sure you could at the Berkeley location as well.

      Call to order at Genova; their pasta factory is in Oakland & they can save some uncut sheets for you if they have advance notice.

        Phoenix Pastificio can also sell you uncut sheets.

          I second Phoenix Pastifico. In my experience, their pasta has been really good and really fresh.

          I highly recommend the fresh lasagna sheets at Lucca Ravioli Co. on Valencia St...

            I second Lucca. You could also try Pasta Gina on Diamond at 24th in Noe Valley.

            make your own. seriously. it takes a bit of time, but not that much. and the truth about fresh pasta is that it goes 'unfresh' really fast. while some of those places will have really fresh ones, some might be a couple of days old. in that case, dry pasta is gonna be better.

              Thanks, but I would like to buy my lasagna sheets as I don't have a pasta machine and can't afford to buy one, plus I do not have the time to use a rolling pin and roll it out myself.

              Thanks though to everyone for the above recommendations!

                I third Phoenix. . . if you've never been there it's a bit of a hassle to find it. . when you find the address, go all the way to the back of the building on the left side and the little door right before the door to the cafe is the entrance . their pasta is the best in the bay area. . . not only can you get your sheets of plain pasta but many other flavors that they can cut to order - if only they would buy a new extruder. . their extruded pastas were sublime. It's utterly fresh pasta. Also, if Eric has any fresh baked goods handy, I suggest you buy some. . . he's a gifted baker.
