Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun.

Today: The simplest kind of filled pasta, from Mario Batali's How To Tuesdays series.



If one of your resolutions this year isn't to make pasta from scratch -- well, it should be.

Because as our friends over at Mario Batali's restaurants have showed us, making fresh pasta is easy -- and opens up a whole new world of cooking. We've got you covered on making the dough and rolling it out; now, it's time for the simplest filled pasta of all: mezzalune.

Make whatever filling you'd like -- try this or this, perhaps -- then let Chef Josh Laurano of Tarry Market show you how to make the classic half-moon shaped pasta. Now, invite your friends over. It's time for a party.

Got anything you want to learn from the Batali chefs? Let us know in the comments!

This video was made in collaboration with Mario Batali.
