My great-grandmother (born in the 1870s in Newark, NJ left here cavarola board to my grandmother who left it to my mother then to me. None of us knew what it was used for. My mother never made any kind of Italian food. It’s been hanging in my kitchen for 45 years. Thank you for finally solving a long mystery in my family
Thanks so much for this recipe! I’ve never heard of this pasta type and am so happy to learn about it. It’s beautiful and the sauce looks scrumptious! I’m looking online as we speak for a cavarola board! Yum! Grazie mille!
