Names can be deceiving. Eggplant isn’t made of eggs, microwaves don’t wash up on beaches, and mushrooms don’t have windows. You’ll also find more than just noodles at Dave’s Fresh Pasta. With today’s Groupon, $10 gets you $20 worth of gourmet groceries at Somerville specialty shop.

If you’re clueless in the kitchen, you’ll be hard-pressed to come up with a more deliciously effortless dish than pasta—not counting grandma's recipe for scrambled air—and Dave’s has endless pastabilities. All noodles are homemade, priced by the pound, and cut to order, although we haven't tried asking for a giant blanket of lasagna yet. Try the porcini mushroom ravioli ($7.99) or the saffron-flavored spaghetti ($4.00) smothered with Dave’s made-from-scratch sauces. If boiling water is too involved for you, you’ll find an impressive selection of hot and cold sandwiches. The California turkey is loaded with left coast-loving fixings like alfalfa sprouts, hass avocado, and cucumbers ($7.95). You can even opt to build your own, selecting the filling, cheese, veggies, spreads, and bread of your choice, from chimney-smoked rye to thumpernickel. Pick up some beer or wine from Dave's carefully curated collection to wash it all down. If you’re overwhelmed, the helpful, fun staff can help you make the right choice for your stomach.

Variety is the spice of life, and Dave’s is the salt and pepper. The extensive grocer is perfect for those who have restless taste buds, but don’t have time to keep changing up their lunch locale. Control freaks will love the option to dictate every element of their meal construction. Get this Groupon for a place to please friends with disagreeing food preferences.

When plotting out your ingredient combinations at Dave’s Fresh Pasta, be aware of the ramifications of each herb and spice. Although a heaping dose of garlic will help keep draculas away, it will have the converse effect on rampaging hoards of Emeril Lagasses. Carefully evaluate your decision with this handy list:

  • Apple cider vinegar: repels insects; attracts redheaded Geminis
  • A pendant of purest silver: repels wolfmans; attracts disapproving clucking noises from aunts
  • A sprig of sage: attracts vintage Sesame Street merchandise; repels Rōnin
  • Lock of actual clown hair: attracts good fortune, prosperity; repels second dates
