We've all had our share of food mishaps and calamities. Most of mine seem to involve large scale drops, spills or fumbles resulting in speckled furniture, a colorful smattering of naughty words, and one heck of a mess. There was the agua fresca incident, an epic vegetarian lasagna bobble that covered everything below hip height in my kitchen, and an unfortunate gnocchi episode where they actually bounced when dropped. No really, like little pasta-esque bouncy balls that you used to get out of the 25 cent machines at the supermarket.
Needless to say, I have not braved pasta making since. But thanks to the amazing folks at Cookware.com, you now have a chance avoid any future pasta incidents with the amazing Cucina Pro Pasta Fresh 5 Machine, shown above. Wouldn't you love to check your mailbox and have this waiting for you? This fantastic addition to any kitchen makes spaghetti, fettuccine, angel hair, ravioli and lasagnette while being stylish and not taking up a ton of valuable kitchen space. Want to whip up some fresh, healthy pasta any time you darn well please? Well then check out the rules below.
The winner will be selected at random on Friday, February 12th. Consider it your first of hopefully many lovely gifts for Valentine's Day! This contest is only open to the continental United States, so my apologies to my friends in Canada and points beyond.
I bet you'd like to know how to get your hot little hands on this beauty. Here's the low down.
