We were excited to learn a few months ago that a new homemade pasta shop had moved in within walking distance of our house. The leftover pesto from last week’s cooking extravaganza gave us the perfect excuse to try it out.

Nicole-Taylor’s Pasta & Market offers fresh pasta in tons of different flavors and shapes, as well as fresh bread baked by students from the Chef’s Academy, cheeses and cured meats, pre-made salads, desserts and lasagna, and lots of other locally-made food items.
The shop is owned by Rosa Hanslits and her husband Tony (current dean of the Chef’s Academy downtown). Rosa couldn’t be nicer! I love buying local foods from people who love what they do.
We chose fresh spinach, tomato, and red pepper linguine to combine with our pesto. It was excellent!

I’m looking forward to trying more from Nicole-Taylor’s. With that and Locally Grown Gardens on the same corner, I’m in heaven!

I was just there a few days ago. The neighborhood has gone from solely Mama Carolla's and added quite a few worthy destinations.

Yeah - it's so exciting to see the new independent businesses popping up!
