Pasta Dinner - Choose Your Own Kit for 2

Take your pick from a variety of Broders’ legendary housemade pastas, along with your choice of sauce!

Molly and Thomas Broder took an inspirational trip to the culinary capital of Bologna, Italy, in 1981, and they returned to the U.S. with a goal of bringing fresh-made pasta and other authentic Italian food to Minneapolis. In 1982, they opened Broders’ Cucina Italiana, and since then (along with additional restaurants, including a nearby “pasta bar”) it’s become a cornerstone of the neighborhood, and one of the very best Italian restaurants and markets in America.
