Homemade pasta is a labor of love. For Italian-Americans, the memories of our mothers and grandmothers hand-mixing semolina flour and egg, then carefully rolling it to just the right thickness and texture is collectively one of the most treasured memories we carry. At Salerno’s we bring our family’s homemade pasta tradition to our Berwyn and Oak Park customers. Learn more about the heart of our homemade ravioli, homemade lasagna, and other dishes on our menu that feature our housemade pasta.
Why Housemade Pasta?
When dry, factory-made pasta is easily available and inexpensive in Forest Park, why go to the trouble of making housemade pasta? Doesn’t it just make menu items more expensive? While homemade ravioli and homemade lasagna do cost a bit more than their frozen counterparts, we think it’s well worth the expense to have housemade pasta at the heart of these dishes. Housemade pasta, simply put, is a much higher quality than dry pasta. It’s perfect for creamy sauces, and the pasta retains a smooth and creamy texture. While it takes time to make housemade pasta, the cooking time is cut in half. Plus, with commercially-made pasta, who knows how long it’s sat on the shelf? With Salerno’s housemade pasta, Stickney diners know they’re getting fresh pasta, made with love.
