Spaghetti is much more slender than gnocchi, making it better for slurping between teeth or slipping through a keyhole to feed a finch trapped on the other side of a locked door. Dine upon this diverse food group with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of homemade pasta and sauces at Pasta Fresh.
Pasta Fresh's owner, Anthony Bartucci, purveys made-from-scratch pastas and carryout Italian fare. Ravioli pasta pillows come stuffed with fillings such as cheese ($4/lb.), meat ($4.95/lb.), or pumpkin ($4.95/lb.), and ribbons of fresh egg noodles come in many different varieties ($2.95/lb.). Window signs proclaim lunches, including spinach-and-cheese ravioli in vodka sauce or rigatoni sauced in marinara ($6.99), and a chalkboard announces prepared pastas to go ($6.99). Arancini ($2), or panzerotti ($3) can be snacked upon when one hand is busy.
