Is there a place (prefer Mont Co- but interested in DC/Balt too) to buy fresh pasta ready to cook?

    Vace sells it. (Locations in Cleveland Park and also Bethesda.)

      I have had good luck with the pastas that Copper Pot Food Co. makes. I know that he is at the White House farmers market on Thursdays.

      You can't buy "fresh pasta." You make it. The difference is night and day. Litteri's sells durum flour and Sonoma sells the Atlas machines to roll it out.

        jaw: yeah but what a pain, kinda fun, but a pain (the clean-up that is).

        rtc: Call the Canales in the Eastern Market, give them a few days notice and they can customize the flavor of the pasta and the fillings for the ravioli and tortellini if you want to get really particular. usu. a wide range of choice (basic to special) over the counter on a walk-in basis.

        older thread, but still valid

        In Cockeysville, Fazzini's makes all of their own pasta and has it available to buy uncooked in a refrigerator. I would call ahead to reserve a special type.

            you'll be going to more trouble to get it, than to make it. Takes about 30 min. and it really is better.

            Vace is good. Very high turnover, hence pretty fresh.
