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 owners, brothers Anthony and Gino Bartucci, purvey 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 flutter fancifully when held in front of an industrial exhaust fan ($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). Like mini calzones, panzerotti ($3) can be snacked upon when one hand is busy.
