This kit comes with two of Broders’ top-sellers: Fettuccine Bolognese and Lasagna Pesto Genovese, made with housemade egg pasta layered with housemade basil pesto, asparagus, pine nuts, fresh basil, and Pecorino Romano.
Back in 1981, Molly and Thomas Broder took an inspirational trip to the culinary capital of Bologna, Italy, and they returned to the States with a goal of bringing authentic Italian food and fresh-made pasta to Minneapolis. The following year, they opened Broders’ Cucina Italiana, and since then (along with additional restaurants, including a nearby “pasta bar”) it’s become a cornerstone of the community, and one of the very best Italian restaurants and markets in America.
