Fresh pasta isn't reserved for Italian grandmothers or people with too much time on their hands - all you need is a bit of muscle and a bottle of wine. You knead to give this recipe a try!
Because pasta is just a vessel for sauce, the sauce and filling preparation will influence what wine you chose to pair with. Consider how rich your dish will be when picking a wine: the heavier the dish, the more oomph you need from your wine.
With a classic Italian dish like pasta you really can't go wrong with a red from... you guessed it: Italy! Medium bodied wines high tannins and acidity are perfect with a tomato based sauce. If you go for an oil or cream based sauce, look for an acidic white.
