Joy and Music on a Plate / Gioia e Musica su un Piatto

If music be the food of life, play on, and Mary Ann does just that with her grandmother's wire-stringed Chittara, that makes music - and short work - of freshly-rolled sheets of pasta, transforming them into fabulous spaghetti. She combines this with an Abruzzese regional classic Lamb Ragu that's slow-simmered until it's tender to the palate and terrific to the testbeds.

Episode Duration: 27 minutes and 8 seconds
