How to Make:
Lobster Mafaldine Pasta

Two main traditional Italian ingredients: Lobster & Mafaldine Pasta make up this amazing dish. Mafaldine pasta, named after Princess Mafalda of Savoy, is ribbon-shaped, flat, wide, and has wavy edges on both sides. This cut of pasta is meaty and holds other ingredients very well within its ridges. The addition of lobster, of course, highlights the coastal region of Italy. Bringing his authentic family recipe from Italy, Chef Anthony shows us how to make this decadent Italian dish. Follow along to experience your own taste of Italy.
