VENDOR OF THE WEEK

Nicola’s Pasta Fresca is new to the Roseland Farmers’ Market this season. We are so excited to be joining the great team of vendors to serve Roseland’s customers. Chef Nicola studied culinary art in Parma, Italy and graduated from Alma University. He brings his passion for using local and fresh farm ingredients together to make artisanal pasta that is nutritious, easy to prepare and always fresh with no preservatives.
We offer a large selection of fresh homemade ravioli and cut pasta. Together with our homemade fresh sauces our customers can enjoy an easy, delicious and nutritious meal in twenty minutes. Each week we will have seasonal specials which are great as side dishes or entrees. All our products are made with fresh ingredients sourced from local farms.
Some of our ravioli choices include short rib, spinach, cheese, and mushroom along with lots of specials like chicken with sun-dried tomatoes, chorizo, whole wheat kale,zucchini or swiss chard and many more. Some of our cut pasta choices include spaghetti, fettuccine, bucatini, rigatoni, orecchiette, and fusilli many of which are available in plain, mushroom, spinach, and whole wheat. We also offer Arancini (rice balls) which are available in the traditional Sicilian style made with saffron rice, beef and peas, or in mushroom, and in parmigiano reggiano cheese.
Our pasta preparation is so easy. All our pasta is made fresh and remain frozen until you are ready to cook. Simply boil water and cook ravioli for 8-10 minutes or cut pasta for 3-5 minutes. Ask Chef Nicola for quick sauce recipes or purchase our fresh tomato or bolognese sauce for a complete meal prepared in twenty minutes.
All our pasta is packaged carefully with our signature colored ribbon. Our pasta is great for easy home-cooked meal everyday or they make an interesting house gift if you are going to a party and something you can be sure your host won’t be getting from others.
